The Tier 4 General visa allows persons over the ages of 16 to come the UK and study.  The visa entitles all applicants to:

  • Study and live in the UK
  • Work in the UK

In order to apply for a Tier 4 General visa to the UK, an applicant must satisfy the following minimum requirements:

  • Must be over the age of 16
  • Must be accepted unconditionally at a registered educational institution for a course that meets minimum requirements
  • Must have maintenance funds to support them whilst studying
  • Must have competent English Language skills

In addition to meeting the basic eligibility requirements you need to meet the minimum points requirement of 40. The categories to acquire points are broken down between your acceptance to an eligible institution and the funds required to maintain yourself.
