Child Student Visa

STUDENT VISAS / CHILD STUDENT VISAS

There are two student categories under Tier 4 of the points-based system:
· Tier 4 (General) student – This category is for students coming to the UK for post-16 education. A Tier 4 (General) student must be at least 16 years old.
· Tier 4 (Child) student – This category is for children between 4 and 17 years old coming to the UK for their education. Tier 4 (Child) students can only study at independent schools.

For both categories you must have a valid Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies from a fully licensed Tier 4 sponsor, which is the educational establishment you are studying at and you must have enough money to cover course fees and monthly living costs.

If you are under 12 years old, you can be accompanied to the UK by your parent or legal guardian. Your parent or legal guardian must apply as the parent of a Tier 4 (Child) student. The money you will need to show will depend on whether there will be additional Tier 4 (Child) students coming with your parent or legal guardian.
