Tier 4 (General) student visa has been revised by the Uk Border Agency recently. If you want to study in Uk and get the visa you need 40 points as same as before. But Tier 4 visa policy changed other way.
How the 40 points come?
- 30 points for your institute (University or college) and must be ‘A’ rated university or college.
- 10 points for maintenance funds (see details to New Uk Student Visa: Point Based system )
Latest changes in Tier 4 visa
- New Tier 4 application fees is 199 GBP and inside Uk postal visa fees is 357 GBP (will be introduced from Tuesday 6 April 2010)
- English language requirements has been changed. Minimum requirements is GCSE level
- If you course under degree level you can’t work no more than 10 hours per week during term time.
