I'm F1 student. I am traveling from NYC to Spain via London. My connecting flight belongs to different terminal (from terminal 5 to 3). If I have to change terminal at Heathrow, do I need to go through UK Border control ? Thank you.

    There is a bus that goes T5<->T3 that remains in the transit area. You don't need to enter the UK.

No, you should follow the purple signs to Flight Connections and then take the free bus to Terminal 3. You will not need to enter the UK or clear customs.
