Tier 4 Student Visa
If you're 16 or older and want to study in the UK, you can apply for a student visa. A licenced student sponsor has given you a spot on a course having sufficient funds to support yourself as well as pay for your course. Depending on your circumstances, the amount will differ. You must be able to communicate in English. This includes speaking, reading, writing, and understanding. Also, if you are 16 or 17 years old, you must get your parents' permission; you'll need proof of this when you apply. You may also be eligible for a Child Student visa too.
What Can We do to Help?
Student visas are extremely tight and exact, and the documentation might be difficult to understand. B&F consultants will assist you in completing the documentation and ensuring its accuracy. Trust us and our years of experience when dealing with the Home Office. We can assist you with both your student visa and child student visa if need be.
Recommended Application Dates
When applying from outside the UK the earliest you can apply for the student visa is 6 months before the start of your course. Usually, within 3 weeks you’ll receive your decision. However, applying from inside the UK the earliest you can apply is 3 months before your course starts. Your decision will be with you within 8 weeks.
The cost of applying for a student visa from outside the UK is £348. From within the UK, it costs £475 to extend or transfer to a student visa. Remember you must pay the visa fee for each additional people travelling with you.
Please contact us to discuss your application costs and arrange a consultation of your case.
The length of your degree and previous studies in the UK will determine how long you may remain in the UK. You can normally stay in the UK for up to 5 years if you're 18 or older and studying at a degree level. If your qualification is below a bachelor's degree, you can normally stay in the UK for up to two years. Also, you will be able to apply for an extension and/or switch visas. For instance, if you have completed the degree level of study you can apply for the Graduate Visa. We can also help you with the procedures involved with that too.
You are welcome to arrive in the United Kingdom before the commencement of your course. If your course lasts less than 6 months, this can be up to 1 week before the start date; if your course lasts more than 6 months, this can be up to 1 month before the start date. Also, while present in this country you will not have access to public benefits funds or be self-employed.
