UK Student's



This section explains how you can apply to come to or remain in the UK as an adult student under Tier 4 (General) of the points-based system.

Tier 4 is part of our points-based system for immigration. It is for migrants who want to study in the UK.

This page contains basic information about the Tier 4 (General) category. Other pages will help you to decide whether you can and should apply in this category, and will give you the information you need to make an application.

If you know the Tier 4 (General) requirements and you want to make an application, you can go directly to the Applying from inside the UK or Applying from outside the UK pages.

Depending on your nationality and circumstances, you may be able to study in the UK without needing to apply under Tier 4 (General) as an adult student. However, your ability to work while you are studying here may be restricted.

Choose a heading below to show more information.

Changes to student visa rules are now in force

04 July 2011

Significant changes to the Tier 4 student route of the points-based system have come into effect today.

We have revised the Immigration Rules relating to Tier 4 in order to:

restrict work entitlements, by only allowing students sponsored by higher education institutions (HEIs) and publicly funded further education colleges to work part-time during term time and full-time during vacations;
restrict sponsorship of dependants to those of students sponsored by HEIs on postgraduate courses lasting 12 months or longer, and of government-sponsored students on courses lasting longer than 6 months;
require institutions to confirm that courses represent genuine academic progression from any previous courses studied by the student in the UK; and
create a streamlined application process for low-risk nationals sponsored by Highly Trusted sponsors.
These changes are aimed at delivering a strong migration system which tackles immigration abuse while allowing genuine students to study at genuine colleges.

We have also revised the application forms for Tier 4 (General), Tier 4 (child) and dependants under the points-based system. The new versions of these forms should be used with immediate effect.

The changes to the Immigration Rules were laid in Parliament on 13 June. A previous news story gives full details of all the changes and associated amendments that come into force today.

The latest revisions follow the Home Secretary's statement to Parliament about student visas, and the publication of a statement of intent, in March.
