I am attending a conference in school of mathematics, Edinburgh.

I am looking for option of standard visitor visa but I could not find in the options.

enter image description here

Should I opt for short-term student visa?

I will be in UK for period of 15 days.

  • Are you sure the standard visitor visa isn't listed under either S or V? It's not possible to say from that image. A short-term student visa is almost certainly incorrect, since you will not be enrolling in a course of study.

  • there is an option of "Visit"... Could that be another name for "standard visitor visa"? @phoog May 15, 2019 at 17:56

    Yes, "visit" would be the same as "standard visitor."

  • It's a bit odd that it is written in all capital letters, however.

    @phoog, on the other hand there's also both "Tier 5" and "TIER 5", so I think it's just a matter of crappy quality control of their IT... May 16, 2019 at 0:35

A student visa is definitely the wrong choice, since you will not be enrolling as a student. As noted in the comments, the list includes "Visit," which is the item you should select.
