Find out if you need a student visa
It is important to apply for your visa as far in advance as possible
Before you come to study in the UK it is important to find out whether you need a visa and how UK immigration procedures may affect you. Make sure you find out well in advance as it can take a long time to get a visa. If you need a Tier 4 student visa, you can apply up to three months before you start your studies. You can apply when you have been accepted on a course and have received your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
