New Tier 4 visa pilot scheme introduced for international students

03 August 2016

 

The UK has launched a new Tier 4 visa pilot scheme for international students, allowing them to extend their stay in the UK for six months and also submit fewer documents in their application.

The scheme was launched by the UK Home Office in July and is aimed at students who enrol on a Masters degree of 13 months or less at Imperial College London, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and University of Bath. The scheme is open for 2016-17 (for visa applications submitted on or after July 25) and 2017-18 intakes and students applying from inside the UK as well as from overseas.

Professor Alice Gast of Imperial College London, said: “This pilot scheme is an encouraging step forward. The ability to stay on for six months will bring benefits to the students and to the country as our talented graduates will be able to pursue their entrepreneurial ideas, further study or add to the UK’s talent pool.”

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
