To study in the UK most applicants will require a Tier 4 visa under the Points Based System, whether they are an adult or a child.
There are also some short term visas available, for example to study English Language.
It is important to identify the correct route that suits an applicants’ needs. For Tier 4 the applicant needs to score the necessary points for having an offer of a place on a course of studies at a recognised UK education institution and funds to pay course fees and maintain themselves.
We have extensive experience in advising on both an initial student applications and extensions of stay as well as on issues concerning conditions attached to a student’s visa such as the right to work and breaks in study.
We can also advise on post-study visa options to remain in the UK for work, to set up in business or upon the basis of a relationship, we can also advise on Administrative Review if an application is refused.
