Student Route Visa
From 05 October 2020 the Tier 4 (General) visa will be replaced by the new Student Route visa. You do not need to take any action if you already obtain a Tier 4 (General) visa. If you are applying for a visa extension to complete the remainder of your course, you will be applying under the new Student Route visa.
If you are an international student planning to come to the UK to study for longer than 6 months, you will likely require a Student Route visa. All the information below explains how to apply for a Student Route visa, and how changes to your course and study status can impact your leave in the UK.
Here in International Student Support we are here to help you with your Student Route visa status once it is granted. If you require advice on a different type of visa, please contact International Student Support and we will be able to state whether we can advise.
