Types of Student Visas
There are two types of Student Visas:
Tier 4 Student (General) Visa
Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa for children aged 4 to 17 years who wish to attend an independent school in the UK
Eligibility Requirements for a UK Tier 4 Student (General) Visa
In order to be eligible for a Tier 4 (General) Student Visa, you must:
Have been offered a place on an approved course of study;
Provide evidence that you can pay your fees and support yourself financially throughout the time you are studying; and
Have the ability to read, write and speak English
Eligibility Requirements for a UK Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa
To obtain a Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa for your child, you must be able to show:
Your child has been offered a place in a school;
They have your permission; and
Proof of funds available to pay fees and support themselves during the course of their study
As a law firm fully recognised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), we have the experience and the expertise required to ensure your application for a Tier 4 Student Visa is granted swiftly.
Our immigration team, led by Farrakh Rashid, will ensure the correct forms are filled in and the documents are then filed correctly, so your time and money is not wasted having to resubmit forms. Based in Birmingham, Farrakh and her colleagues at Sultan Lloyd Solicitors will make the process of applying for a Tier 4 Student Visa simple and efficient.
Refused Applications for Tier 4 Student Visas
If your application for a student visa has been refused by the Home Office, we can apply for either Administrative or Judicial Review, depending on the reasons for refusal.
From 2nd March 2015 there is no longer a right of appeal under the Points Based System (PBS), (of which the Tier 4 Student Visa falls under), except under very limited circumstances. It is therefore imperative to instruct an experienced legal professional to ensure your student visa application is submitted correctly and reviewed if it is declined.
