Student visas are granted for a fixed period of time based upon the length of the course the person is undertaking in the UK. The lengths are as follows:-
Degree level or above
Below degree level
If a further course is to be undertaken after the initial course then a further visa must be applied for before the expiry of the original visa. It will be granted for a length of time based upon the above terms.
There is no limit to how many student visas could be applied for, so in theory (providing the person is still genuinely studying) then a person could stay for any length of time. Once a person has been here studying for 12 years they can apply for indefinite leave to remain.
