Additional Changes to Tier 4 Policy - UK Student Visa

The new policies announced this week claim at keeping genuine Foreign Students considering the UK as a top international study destination while making it more difficult for students to abuse the immigration system in the UK.

Time Allowed in the UK on a Student Visa

The maximum time for foreign students in the UK studying at NQF 3-5 will be set at 3 years while those students at NQF level 6-7 will be 5 years.

In the situation where a student needs an extension but is not moving to the next NQF level then the UK Sponsoring Institution will have to confirm the academic progression.

International PHD students and cases where there is a need for professional qualification can stay longer than 5 years.
