Student Visa Terms and Provisions

UK student visas are based on a transparent Point Based System (PBS) which requires that students gain at least 40 points before applying for a visa. Here are the important points to be noted regarding the student visa application process:

  • The applicant must have received the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for a full-time degree course from the university sponsoring its education.
  • Institutions with the power to sponsor visas in this way are said to hold Tier 4 Sponsor
  • The intention of leaving the UK after completing the degree must be clearly stated during the visa interview.

A student applying for a UK study visa cannot hold a full-time permanent job. However, after graduating, one can apply for a work permit under INF 13 for employment in the UK.
