University of Bath selected for Tier 4 visa pilot
University of Bath
We've been selected for a Home Office pilot scheme, giving one-year master's students the opportunity to benefit from a streamlined visa application process.
In July 2016, the Home Office, the UK government department responsible for immigration, selected just four British universities - Bath, Cambridge, Imperial and Oxford - to take part in a scheme that will streamline certain aspects of the Tier 4 student visa process.
The pilot applies to all students applying for a visa to study master's courses lasting up to 13 months and starting in 2016 or 2017.
There are two important benefits for students:
• while students are still required to meet the Tier 4 Immigration Rules, the need to supply certain supporting documents with the Tier 4 visa application has been removed, making the process more streamlined
• students will be granted six months' leave, rather than the usual four months, to remain in the UK after completing their studies
