We are experienced in advising non-EEA nationals on the requirements to come to study in the UK.
Most applications from students planning to undertake a course of study in the UK now fall under Tier 4 (General) of the Points-Based System.
There are three main requirements for Tier 4 (General) applications:
- The applicant must have been offered a place on a course at a UK institution which is registered on the Home Office's Register of Sponsors and be assigned a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies from that institution
- The applicant must show that they meet the maintenance requirements
- The applicant must demonstrate an appropriate level of English (depending on their course of study)
That said, the rules in relation to students and the supporting document requirements are complex and subject to change, often with little or no notice. Therefore, we recommend seeking advice at an early stage.
