We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Trinidad and Tobago can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Trinidad and Tobago to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Trinidad and Tobago 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. A portfolio is also required for most of our art and design courses. 

More specifically, we are seeking students with:

  • a Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE),
  • an Associate Degree, or
  • GCE A-levels.

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

Visa information

As a Trinidad and Tobago national, you will need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK. 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 Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) number. You will need this document to apply for a student visa.

You should make your application for a visa at the local British Embassy or High Commission.
