Students, under the current Immigration Rules, are dealt with under the points-based system of entry to the UK.

There are two main types of student categories in Tier 4 (General) Student, Adult Students for post 16 education and Child Students or a Tier 4 (Child) Student that covers children aged between 4 and 17.

All Tier 4 students must apply for entry clearance. As part of the visa regime or entry certificate application, prospective students must produce certain crucial documentation including a Confirmation of Acceptance for studies (CAS) from a Home Office Approved Education Provider (a licence from Home Office).

Team MT UK Immigration & Human Rights Department, experts on student visas, can provide you advice and assistance to be compliant with the point-based system and in particular on the following:

  • Who is a student
  • Sponsorship: approved education provider
  • Tier 4 (General) student
  • Leave to enter the UK
  • Extension of student visa
  • What can Tier 4 (General) Student do besides studying
  • Family members of a Tier 4 (General) Student
  • Who can switch to become a Tier 4 (General) Student
  • Tier 4 (General) Student switching to another category

So contact Team MT UK (Immigration & Human Rights) – Department for that specialist advice and representation.
