Hi

If he is currently in the UK on a visitor visa then he cannot switch into a student visa from within the UK and will need to return to Spain to apply for the visa.

thank you

Hi

If he was living in the UK prior to the 30th December 2020 then he can apply for the pre-settled status online. He will need to provide evidence that he was living in the UK at the time.

The deadline to apply was the 31st June 2021 however as he is under the age of 18 he can apply and the home office should apply thier discretion.

Can you please help me fill out this application

Hi

Kindly note that he will need to return home to apply for the student visa and the application will need to completed.to state that he is out of the UK. Once the visa is granted then there will be a stamp in his Passport to allow him to come back to the UK and once inside the UK he collects the biometric card from the local designated Post office.

You will need to raise another question and then once I respond you can request the phone
