Tier 4 Student Visa 

The Tier 4 Point Based System visa category consists of:
•    The Tier 4 (General) student visa. This visa category caters to students 16 years of age and over who wish to come to the UK to study
•    The Tier 4 (Child) Student visa. This visa category is for children between 4 and 17 years old coming to the UK to study


To be granted a visa, you must score at least 40 points. You must have a valid Certificate of Acceptance (CAS) from a Tier 4 licensed sponsor and have enough money to cover course fees and monthly living costs.

If you are a non-EEA national and wish to obtain permission to stay under this visa route, you may be required to pay the Immigration Health Surcharge, which is currently set at the level of £150.00 for each 12 months’ period of residence in the UK.

You might be asked to undergo an interview over the phone or in person as a part of an application process.

If you are seeking legal advice on your eligibility for a Tier 4 visa, please do not hesitate to contact our Immigration team.
