Have you done a search of the forum here? It's been discussed numerous times. It's possible.

just be warn that the purpose of the social visit visa is not for renewing it indefinitely. immigration will catch up with you sooner or later.

Depending on her subject, experience and whathaveyou, I'd start with my links page a fair bit down the first column where it has a heading for "International / Private & Special Schools" and visit their sites and proceed to contact each and every one of them before you come here (if you already know your approximate arrival time frame).

Get down on one knee, propose, get hitched, problem solved!

I'm quite disappointed SMS and Mr D that you both failed to suggest the general and obvious solution to the OP's predicament :roll:
