Visa to the United Kingdom
If you are an international student (excluding individuals from European Union and EEA) you will need to apply for a Tier 4 VISA.
When to apply?
You can apply for a visa up to 3 months before your date of travel to the UK. We strongly advise you not to confirm your travel arrangements until you have received your visa.
Before you apply, you must:
- prepare the supporting documents that you will need; documents required
- be ready to enrol your fingerprints and photograph (known as biometric information) at our visa application centre; and
- be able to pay the visa application fee. The Visa application fees and guides page explains how much your visa application will cost.
