International students from outside the UK or EU must apply for a student visa. You can only apply for a student visa if you intend to study a full-time degree course in the UK. Student visas are not issued for part-time courses. Your eligibility is calculated using a points-based rules system called a Tier 4 Student Visa.
you must receive a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from a university approved by UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI).
you must provide evidence of funding to pay for both your course tuition fees and your monthly living costs (10 points).
In order to submit your Tier 4 student visa application, please visit the UK Visa & Immigration website to complete the online application form.
