I am afraid he may only qualify for indefinite leave to remain in the UK after being in the UK for 10 years, 6 years is not sufficient.

He would need to get further student or other visas for another 4 years to make up the 10 years.

The 10 year application is on the grounds of long residence. See here for detailed guidance on the rules and requirements:

Hope this helps
