Probably the most popular route of Entry Clearance to the UK is the Student Visa. These visas come under the Points Based System (PBS) and cover those wishing to undertake undergraduate or postgraduate studies leading to a doctorate or master’s degree and who are over 16 years of age.
Children who are at least 4 years old and under 18 who wish to be educated in the UK can apply for a Tier 4 (Child) Student visa.
As with all applications of Leave to Enter or Remain, the Student Visas rules are lengthy and complicated. It is easy to misinterpret meanings or often not understand them at all. Expert advice is crucial to make sure your application is correct and contains all the information in the right format for submission to the Home Office.
