Student jumping solos in the UK
I am a skydiver still on student status in the United States. I have been receiving my training from a very reputable drop zone. I will be in the UK in a couple of weeks and wanted to find out whether I would be allowed to do solo jumps at any of the drop zones? I have already successfully completed my AFF course, hop and pop and four solo jumps. In total, I have 18 jumps so I'm nearly there in terms of qualifying for my A license.
Any recommendations, advice, etc would be much appreciated.

I came back from Spain with 17 jumps and completed my final consolidation jump in the UK with no refresher. Take your log books, expect to be grilled and at worst case expect to have an accompanied jump but otherwise I think you should be OK.
Another option is to email the DZ you are expecting to jump at in the UK and ask them what additional info they require...
