Babies born in the UK
If you are a Tier 4/Student visa holder and you are pregnant, it is very important that you talk to one of our International Student Advisers as soon as possible.
Birth in the UK does not automatically make a baby a British citizen. If your baby is born in the UK but is not a British citizen, it is quite lawful for him or her to remain in the UK without making an immigration application. However, the baby will need immigration permission to re-enter the UK after any travel abroad, and for babies born to Tier 4 students/Students, there are limited instances when the baby can apply for immigration permission as your dependant.
Healthcare for children born in the UK
We advise that students who have babies born in the UK seek to make an immigration application for them as soon as possible after their birth to avoid potential liability for NHS charges for treatment in any period between three months after they are born (up to which free treatment is automatically allowed) and granting of their leave.
UKCISA has very detailed information on babies born in the UK.
