If you need a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, there is a very strict procedure that must be followed, and many essential criteria to meet. This section provides an overview of the process, but it is important that you read in detail the UK Home Office’s Tier 4 of the Points Based System – Policy Guidance.
To apply for your Tier 4 visa, you must visit the UK Home Office’s website.
Before you make your application for a Tier 4 visa, it is a good idea to get familiar with the documents you need to provide. The UK Home Office website has a useful list which explains what you need and why you need it. In addition, the Home Office has created a handy checklist for students, which you can use to ensure your application stands the best chance of being successful.
This website is only a general guide and does not cover all aspects of Tier 4 immigration guidance and legislation. Our guide to applying gives you a far more detailed overview of the processes, and what each stage means - the link for which can be found on this page. It is very important that you, your parents or representatives read the full information given by the UKVI and other bodies below:
The most common reasons for refusal we have seen are applicants not sending in the correct documents, and not holding the required funds to cover your stay in the UK. It is therefore crucial that you read the full guidance carefully. Our International Admissions Team will check all document copies used in your application before you apply, but ultimately it is up to you to ensure that the correct originals are used as your visa application is your responsibility.
You can always contact our Admission team who will be happy to offer help and advice about applying for your visa.
