Therefore, for Mexican students planning to study in the UK this year, it is important that they start the visa process before August.

According to British law, Mexican nationals are exempted from tourist visas for a maximum period of 6 months, however, in case the person wants to study in the UK for more than 6 months in the academic year to start, your process should start in this month of July.

August is the month with the highest global demand for student visa applications, so there may be a delay in receiving the diplomatic decision.
