This article explains what you should do if you are an international (non EU) student travelling outside the UK.
Travelling inside the EU – Schengen Visa
If you are travelling inside the EU, you may need to apply for a Schengen Visa. The Schengen Visa Scheme means visitors only need to apply for one visa to travel to any of the 26 participating European countries in one trip.
To apply for a Schengen visa, you will need to:
Please note that if you are visiting more than one country, book the appointment for the country you are spending the longest duration in. If you’re visiting each country for the same duration, book your appointment for the first destination.
You will need to take this letter with you to your embassy appointment. This letter will take 24 hours to produce. Most embassies will also ask you to provide a travel itinerary and proof of funds.

For more information, please refer to the required embassy website.
