Conditions of your Tier 4 visaStudents

If you currently hold a Tier 4 visa, you need to be aware that there are conditions attached to the visa. The conditions are normally outlined within the email or letter you receive from the Home Office when your visa was granted. Some of the conditions will also be stated on your visa. Please ensure that you refer to the following pages to understand how the conditions of your Tier 4 visa will affect you.

Changes to your programme of study

In addition to the conditions of your visa, you should be aware that your Tier 4 visa has been granted only for the programme of study detailed on your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). It has also only been granted for study at a particular Tier 4 sponsor. Any changes to your programme of study is likely to have an implication on your Tier 4 visa. If you intend to change your programme of study, please refer to the information on the following page before you transfer. You should also contact us to obtain further advice on your individual circumstances.

Adding a work placement to your programme of study

If your current Tier 4 visa does not cover the length of your programme because you have added a work placement year, please refer information on work placement for Tier 4 students.
