Changes to Tier 4 Student Visa applications come into effect February

Changes to the UK student visa application process come into effect on 22 February.

Tier 4 Student Visa

Changes have been made for the application process for a Tier 4 Student Visa.

UK immigration have announced that any student who applies by post or at one of their public enquiry offices to study under a Tier 4 Student Visa of the points-based system must possess a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) from their prospective education sponsor.

From 22 February, it will no longer be possible to apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa using the previous system of a visa letter, even if the visa letter was issued before 22 February 2010.

Until 21 February 2010, applicants can continue to apply under Tier 4 using a visa letter, even if your course of study will start after 22 February 2010.

These changes are part of a continuing review of the UK Tier 4 Student Visa system.
