Do you offer 1-year student visas?

Clarification on Student Visa Durations

At Speak English Institute, we understand that planning your study period is crucial for managing your expectations and preparing for your time in Dubai. It's important to note that we currently offer two types of student visas based on the duration of your chosen course:

- 3-Month Student Visa: Ideal for students enrolled in our 12-week intensive General English courses. This visa suits those looking for a short-term, immersive learning experience.

- 6-Month Student Visa: Available to students who enrol in an intensive General English course for 16 weeks or more. This option is designed for learners seeking a more extended study period to deeply enhance their English proficiency.

Why We Don't Offer 1-Year Student Visas

- Our course structures and learning pathways are designed to provide significant progress within the durations offered. We aim to accommodate a broad range of learning objectives while also considering the practicalities of student commitments and visa regulations.

We do however offer a Study English + Internship Programme which offers an employment visa for those looking to gain work experience in the UAE. For more details about our internship programmes in the hospitality sector, please reach out to our team who will be able to assist you accordingly.
