Tier 4 - Students

Tier 4 of the points-based system covers the different types of visas for students and is divided into the following two subcategories:

  • Tier 4 (General) Student.

    For students aged 16 or over, this subcategory covers students for the duration of their course. The points for attributes under Appendix A of the Tier 4 policy guidance are awarded to applicants seeking entry clearance on the basis of their "Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies" which is issued by the sponsoring education provider.
  • Tier 4 (Child) Student.

    For children aged from 4 to 16 who wish to be educated in the UK and are studying at a fee paying school. Children under the age of 16 will be granted up to six years leave to remain or the duration of the course.
