Requirements for UK student visa

Every student must give full consideration to the Requirements for UK student visa before making an application for visa because this is the most important step and this is the point where a student gets puzzled. Believe me that this is not a problem at all if a student is familiar with all the documents needed for student visa.
As you know that the UK Border Agency (according the new TIER-4 POINTS BASED SYSTEM) has started new form for the UK student visa and there are some new requirements as well.

In the new points based system, a student has to earn the required points (40 points) before making an application for student visa. To earn the 40 points and to be able to apply for visa, a student needs the following documents.

A visa letter or the letter of admission from a licensed sponsor. This letter makes 30 points for a student.

 Proof that the student can fund his/her studies in the UK (in the form of bank statement, scholarship or student loan etc). This proof makes 10 points for a student.

 Passport or other travel document.

 Four resent passport size photographs (45mm x 35mm and

o taken against a white background;

o clear, of good quality, neither framed nor backed;

o on standard photographic paper;

o full face and with no sunglasses, head covering (unless for cultural or religious reasons but the face must not be clearly visible).

 Proof that the student has paid the visa fee.

Health certificate from IOM confirming that the student is not suffering from infectious tuberculosis (TB).

 A filled application form. Forms are available on the UKBA website or you can visit the website of the British High Commission in your country for application form.

IELTS test certificate (minimum 5.5), although not compulsory but it has a very good impact upon the visa.

 All of the above mentioned documents with NIC and all educational documents shall be produce in original and attested photocopies. This depends upon the High Commission whether a student is asked to submit the original documents or some of them.

Please make sure that these are the general requirements for UK student visa. For specific requirements you should visit the British High Commission in your country or you can also visit the British Council if you need any sort of help.

NOTE PLEASE; According to the New Rules it is compulsory to have advanced English language skill. Read more
