Applying for a Tier 4 UK visa
What is Tier 4?
Tier 4 is part of the UK Visas and Immigration’s points based system for non-EEA students who wish to study in the UK. To make a successful application you must meet the full requirements of the Immigration Rules and achieve 40 points.
You will obtain 30 points for the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) sent to you by the University.
You will obtain 10 points for maintenance, the financial requirements which show you have sufficient money to cover your course fees and living expenses.
However as well as achieving 40 points, students may also be asked to attend an interview to assess their credibility as a student.
