Tier 4 Child Student

Who can apply for Tier 4 Child Visa?

A Tier 4 (child) visa applicant can apply to seek entry clearance to do a course in line with the national curriculum or national qualification framework.

We can advise and represent our clients in making their initial application which can only be made from overseas. The applicant needs to claim 40 points in total by having a valid CAS from a licensed educational establishment and having sufficient funds for maintenance and tuition fee.

Tier 4 (child) migrants may also extend their stay in the UK in order to complete their studies or to commence a new course. They need to claim 40 points in total successfully in order to obtain further leave to remain (extension of visa) while making sure the rest of the requirements are met as well.

Requirements for Tier 4 Child Visa Applications

In order to apply for the Tier 4 (Child) student you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must have be enrolled on a course and have the consent of your parent or guardian
  • You can support yourself financially in the UK and can pay for your course fees and living costs
Care Arrangements

It is necessary to have suitable arrangements for the care and accommodation of the child unless the application is either 16 or 17 years of age and can stay independently. A suitable care arrangement includes having a close relative living in the UK who consents for taking care or having one of the parents applying at the same time for entry clearance as “Parent of child at school” (only if the child is aged 12 years or less).

Validity of Tier 4 Child Student Visa

The maximum duration that a child (4-15 years) can study in the UK under Tier 4 (child) is up to 6 years. While for minors aged 16-17 years, it is up to 3 years.

Refusal of Tier 4 Child Visa Application

If the entry clearance application made under Tier 4 (Child) is refused by the ECO (visa officer) in the overseas British Diplomatic post, the applicant will be given a right of administrative review of the decision that must be exercised within 28 days of the date of service of decision. There will not be any general right of appeal against any such decision made by the visa officer. If the administrative review also fails, the matter then can be taken to the Upper Tribunal by lodging judicial review proceedings.

Refusal of Extension of Tier 4 (Child) Visa Application

If the further leave to remain application made under Tier 4 (Child) is refused by the Home Office, the applicant is granted with a right of administrative review which must be exercised within 14 days of the date you receive the decision.
