The Tier 4 General Student visa category is for students to come to the UK for post - 16 education, and the Tier 4 (Child) student visa is for children aged 4 to 17 years to come to the UK for their education. Children aged 4 to 15 years only qualify if they are being educated at independent fee paying schools.

To be granted leave, Tier 4 migrants must satisfy the Immigration Rules and score points against two sets of objective criteria to achieve an overall pass mark of 40 points.

Applicants  must score points for:

  • attributes (30 points), and
  • maintenance (10 points)

If you are outside the UK, you can make an application for entry clearance as a Tier 4 General Student or a Tier 4 Child Student. If you are already in the UK, you may be able to switch or extend your stay in the UK as a Tier 4 General student or Tier 4 Child student, as the case may be.
