Applying For A Tier 4 Visa Outside The UK

Getting Your Visa – Step By Step

You can follow the following steps to apply for your Tier 4 visa. Please note that the action you need to take may be different depending on whether or not you are a new student or a continuing student.

1st Step

New Students – When you are made an unconditional offer, please follow all the instructions given to you by our Admissions Service.

Continuing Students (who commenced their course more than 6 months ago) – Request your CAS from International Student Support. Please follow any further instructions you get until your CAS has been issued.

2nd Step

When your CAS is issued, please check it carefully to ensure that all of your details and your course details are correct. Please ensure that it shows any fee payments or accommodation payments you have made to the University (this will not apply for students who are in private accommodation), and has a note to confirm details any scholarships you receive.
If there are any problems, please contact the relevant CAS issuing team for new students  or continuing students.

3rd Step

Prepare your financial documents and other supporting documents.

Please see here and here for more information on how to meet the financial requirements. There are some examples of supporting documents that meet the criteria here

You must ensure that you have already held the required minimum balance for 28 days by the time you submit your Tier 4 visa application. The date of submission is the date that you pay the application fee, which is usually done online. Please see the infographic below for more help with this.
