FAQs

Do I (or my child) meet the Tier 4 (Child) Study Visa requirements?

This visa must be applied for from the child’s country of residence. The applicant must provide evidence of acceptance onto a course at an independent, fee-paying school in the UK. They must also have:

  • written consent from their parent or guardian;
  • proof of appropriate maintenance funds; and
  • acceptable living provisions.

You will also need to submit identification documents and complete a lengthy application form.

Which schools can I send my child to with a Tier 4 (Child) Visa?

The Child Student Visa allows a child to study at an independent school in the UK. This type of visa does not allow a child to study at an academy, local-authority or state-funded school.

The specialists at IAS are experienced in immigration regulations for the Child Student Visa UK. Using our services will ensure that you understand what you are able to do on this visa before you submit your application.

How long is a child able to stay in the UK with a Child Student Visa?

Generally, the Tier 4 Child Visa means the applicant can remain for the full length of their course.

They are permitted to remain for four months after their course is complete. Once this comes to an end, they will need to leave the country or apply to switch onto another visa type.

If your child will be studying for less than six months, you may need to apply for a Child Visitor Visa. This visa is not required for US citizens.
