You can apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa to study in the UK if you’re 16 or over and you:

have been offered a place on a course
can speak, read, write and understand English
have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course - the amount will vary depending on your circumstances
are from a country that’s not in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland

Read the guide and appendix for the full list of documents and how much money you’ll need.
Your course
You can do a course that’s one of the following:

full-time leading to a qualification that’s at least level 6 on the Ofqual register
part-time leading to a qualification that’s at least level 7 on the Ofqual register
an overseas course of degree level study that’s equal to a UK higher education course and is being run by an overseas higher education institution

finished a recognised UK degree in medicine or dentistry
received that degree from a registered Tier 4 sponsor
spent your final year and at least 1 other year of studies leading to that degree in the UK
Confirmation of acceptance for studies
Your education provider will send you a reference number called a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) once they’ve offered you a place on a course. You’ll need to enter this on your visa application.

You must apply for your visa no more than 6 months after you receive the CAS.

If you’ve studied in the UK before
You can only get a CAS in certain situations if you’re applying from within the UK.

You can get a CAS if you’re:

re-sitting exams or repeating modules
applying for the first time to a new institution to complete a course you started at an institution that lost its Tier 4 sponsorship

If you’re starting a new course
You can get a CAS if your course is one of the following:

at a higher academic level than your previous course
at the same level and related to your previous course or career aspirations - it must be degree level or above at a Higher Education Institution (HEI)
intercalated to a medicine, dentistry or medical science course you started studying under a Tier 4 (General) student visa
If you’re applying to work in the UK
You can get a CAS if you’re applying to either:

work as a student union sabbatical officer
stay in the UK to look for work after you’ve finished your PhD or doctorate - the ‘Doctorate Extension Scheme’ (DES)

UK Tier 4 Documents
When you apply for the visa you must provide:

a current passport or other valid travel documentation
proof that you can support yourself and pay for your course - this will vary depending on your circumstances
proof of parental or other legal guardian consent if you’re under 18
proof of your relationship with your parent or guardian

You need a page in your passport that’s blank on both sides for your visa.

You may also need to provide additional documents depending on your circumstances.

Your documents will usually be sent back within 14 days.

Hi,

Is it possible to sign permanent contract in IT company salary range 3000€ per month if thesis is not done? So, on student visa, can someone sign permanent job contract? Or, it can be legal issue?

Thanks

Hello Everyone I know it has been THAT long since I posted and A LOT has happened since Ive been on here but Ill tell the story later...

I have a friend that was born in DR and moved to Spain where she got her citizenship there. She came to the U.S. last year on a student visa which is still valid, it hasnt expired. At the time she had her boyfriend who is also from DR but lives here in the U.S. He is a U.S. citizen. About two weeks ago they got married. They want to apply now so she can become a permanent resident. What would be the best way to go for that? As far as I was told she should apply for a I-130, but I just wanna make sure they do this right so they can avoid any problems down the road. Any suggestions?
