Q: I am currently in the UK on a Student Visa and want to change to a Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa. Do I have to go home to apply or can I swap from within the UK?
A: Unfortunately it is NOT possible to change from a Student visa to a Youth Mobility visa from inside the UK. You will need to go back and apply from your home country.
The only countries in the Youth Mobility Scheme at present are Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and Monaco but we understand from the Home Office that other countries will be added to the list in due course.
Please contact our offices for further assistance.
