|Immigration Law requirements for studying in the UK
|Testimonials from our clients ▼
|During the stressed period of my divorce, Jeremy Sogno was always available to advise on any queries. As well as receiving an excellent service, in my opinion the costs involved were very reasonable taking into consideration Mr. Sogno’s time at our meetings in the office, telephone & court attendance.

Tier 4 of the Points Based System is specifically for those wanting to study in the UK for longer than 6 months. Students (General) and child students (under 18 years) are the two groups in this category. Students included within this category would include children intending to attend at boarding school or older students intending to go to university. Most applications for entry clearance or visas to come to the UK are by Tier 4 (General) applicants. One of the main requirements for this group is the need to have a Licensed Sponsor. The Licensed Sponsor is the educational institution at which the applicant will be studying. There are three rankings for sponsors, Highly Trusted Sponsor, ‘A’ Rated Sponsor and ‘B’ Rated Sponsor.
There are also specific requirements as to the funding and maintenance of the student whilst in the United Kingdom. Students already in the UK can apply for an extension of their Leave to Remain.
If you want to study in the UK, we will advise you of the requirements and take you through the application process involved, including advising as to how long you can stay and how to evidence that you meet the necessary requirements. We also advise you on whether any of your family members can accompany or join you during your study and the requirements they will need to satisfy for that.
It is essential that you seek our advice before making the application. It is less costly but more importantly, we prevent you ending up in a situation where after your arrival in the UK your visa is revoked and you are not allowed to enter.
We are able to offer specialist advice.
Free initial telephone advice available.
