We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that moving to a new country to study can be a challenge. Students coming from Oman can find a range of advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Oman to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Oman offices or our own international advice team.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels (Bachelor of Arts/Commerce - Pass). A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. 

For postgraduate courses, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British bachelor's degree.

Visa information

If you are coming to study in the UK for longer than six months it is very likely that you will need to apply in advance for a Tier 4 (general) visa.  When you have met all the conditions of entry for a full-time course at Southampton Solent University (including payment of deposit and course acceptance), you will be sent a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number.  You will need this document to apply for a Tier 4 visa.
