I am an American citizen currently residing in Madrid, Spain on a student visa (one year durations). I have been living in Spain for the past three years. I have been accepted to study a master's program in London beginning in September.
Would it be possible for me to apply for a UK student visa (PBS/Tier 4) from Spain?
I wrote to the UK Visa and Immigration International Enquiry Office and they directed me to this link (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/where-to-apply-ecb05/ecb5-where-to-apply-the-policy) that states applications "should be made in the country in which you are living".
Does having a year long student visa qualify me as "living" in Spain? I am also a registered resident with the municipal town hall if that helps. My Spanish visa expires the beginning of July but I plan to apply for the UK student visa at the end of June.
