Tier 4 Student Visa

Who Should Apply?

You must apply for a Student Visa (PEC) if:

  • You are studying in the UK for more than six months
  • Your citizenship classifies you as a visa national
  • You intend to work, intern or volunteer while studying abroad

The application process for the Tier 4 Student Visa requires you to:

  1. Complete an online application for entry clearance
  2. Undergo a biometrics appointment
  3. Mail your complete visa application-including materials that will be sent to you from Liverpool Hope University-to a British Consulate.

After you complete your biometrics appointment, you will need to submit all of your application materials to the British Consulate within a specified period of time.  Because you will need to include documentation sent from Liverpool Hope University, you should not begin online application until you receive this information from Liverpool Hope.

If your application is incomplete and this window of time closes, you will need to reapply from the beginning and re-pay all visa application fees.
