Oxford, Cambridge, St Andrews.  As home to some of the top Universities in the world, it is no wonder the United Kingdom is seen as such a desirable place to study by overseas students.  At Sultan Lloyd Solicitors, our immigration team assist hundreds of young people and adults each year to successfully apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa in order to fulfil their dreams of studying in the UK.

Types of Student Visas

There are two types of Student Visas:

  1. Tier 4 Student (General) Visa
  2. Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa for children aged 4 to 17 years who wish to attend an independent school in the UK

Eligibility Requirements for a UK Tier 4 Student (General) Visa

In order to be eligible for a Tier 4 (General) Student Visa, you must:

  • Have been offered a place on an approved course of study;
  • Provide evidence that you can pay your fees and support yourself financially throughout the time you are studying; and
  • Have the ability to read, write and speak English

Eligibility Requirements for a UK Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa

To obtain a Tier 4 Student (Child) Visa for your child, you must be able to show:

  • Your child has been offered a place in a school;
  • They have your permission; and
  • Proof of funds available to pay fees and support themselves during the course of their study
As a law firm fully recognised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), we have the experience and the expertise required to ensure your application for a Tier 4 Student Visa is granted swiftly.

Our immigration team, led by Farrakh Rashid, will ensure the correct forms are filled in and the documents are then filed correctly, so your time and money is not wasted having to resubmit forms.  Based in Birmingham, Farrakh and her colleagues at Sultan Lloyd Solicitors will make the process of applying for a Tier 4 Student Visa simple and efficient.

Refused Applications for Tier 4 Student Visas

If your application for a student visa has been refused by the Home Office, we can apply for either Administrative or Judicial Review, depending on the reasons for refusal.

From 2nd March 2015 there is no longer a right of appeal under the Points Based System (PBS), (of which the Tier 4 Student Visa falls under), except under very limited circumstances.  It is therefore imperative to instruct an experienced legal professional to ensure your student visa application is submitted correctly and reviewed if it is declined.

'My friends, the Patel family, were referred to Harminder Meht of Sultan Lloyd in September 2013.  We met Harminder when circumstances were very challenging and Harminder explained the available options very clearly, helpfully and with evident empathy and understanding.  Thereafter she and her colleagues helped us at every step including securing legal aid despite the fact that a previous solicitor had not identified that this was possible. Harminder was instrumental in securing the release from detention of one member of the family and following a difficult judicial review process she obtained a Home Office decision that allows the family leave to remain in the UK, to work and study here for the next 30 months. We are all delighted with Harminder and Sultan Lloyd and we are very happy to recommend Harminder and Sultan Lloyd to future users of their services.'
