Still allowed to stay in western Europe after UK Visa expires?
This may be a bit of a cheeky question. I am from the United States originally but I have a UK student visa that expires at the end of October. Is it possible for me to stay in Britain until the visa expires and then go somewhere in Western Europe for three months? Western Europe is the Schengen zone and has different rules than the UK.
Since the visa is only good in Britain, once I leave am I still able to stay in the Schengen zone for three months like most non-EU people? I will not be reentering the UK.
