Tier 4 Student Visa

Who Should Apply?


You must apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa 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 to a British Consulate


You can apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa three months before your course starts - for eligibility and costs go to the UK Visa and Immigration website.


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. 

You will need to include documentation sent from Liverpool Hope University, so please do not begin the on-line application until you receive this information (CAS).

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.
