With a Tier 4 student visa you will be granted leave to enter the UK for the purposes of completing your course. The duration of your student visa will take into account the time needed to conclude affairs and attend graduation at the conclusion of your course. Students will be able to change courses at the same institution without needing to submit a new application. However, changing sponsors or obtaining a UK tier 4 visa extension will require a new application to be lodged.
IMI Solutions can advise and assist you at any stage of your student visa application and can you help lodge an appeal if it has been refused.
It has been made clear that Tier 4 is not intended as a route to settlement in the UK and does not provide the opportunity to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) nor can it lead to British naturalisation. Graduates may apply for a Tier 1 – Post Study Work Visa in order to remain in the UK.
If you are a student studying in the UK at degree level, or higher, you are allowed to work for 20 hours each week during term time and full-time during holiday periods. If you have any dependants they will be able to join you.
Dependants of students making a successful tier 4 UK visa application will be permitted to enter the UK
