Apply from outside the UK
When you apply for a Tier 4 visa from your home country it is called applying for Entry Clearance.

If you are joining us from another UK institution or applying for a visa extension, this is called applying for Leave to Remain.
Meeting the right conditions
As a Tier 4 student in the UK, there are important conditions and responsibilities to be aware of.
Apply for your CAS
A Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is a unique letter/number code which will enable you to apply for a Tier 4 visa. We will become your sponsor once we issue you a CAS.
Short-term Study Visas
You'll need this type of visa if are coming on a study abroad or exchange programme.
Working in the UK
Your ability to work in the UK depends on what kind of visa you hold. Some students are also interested in staying in the UK to work after studies.
Travelling in Europe
Many students like to travel around Europe during holiday periods. Find out about how to do this and whether it affects your existing UK visa.
Some Tier 4 visa-holding students are required to register with the Police after arriving in the UK.
