WHAT ARE THE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS TO APPLY FOR A CHILD STUDENT VISA?

In order to be eligible for a Child Student Visa, you must:

  • Be a genuine student;
  • Have been offered a place on a course by a licensed student Sponsor which is an independent school;
  • Have a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies by a licensed student Sponsor which is an independent school;
  • Intend to study a course that meets the Course Requirements in Appendix Child Student of the Immigration Rules;
  • Have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course. You must prove that you have held the required level of funds for 28-days before the date of Application. You do not need to satisfy the financial requirement if you fall within the ‘differential evidence’ requirement;
  • Provide evidence of the qualifications you used to obtain the offer of a place on the course from the licensed student Sponsor;
  • Have parental consent from your parents or legal guardian;
  • Provide a valid Tuberculosis Certificate if you are travelling from a country listed in Appendix T of the Immigration Rules.

WHEN MUST I APPLY FOR A CHILD STUDENT VISA?

Once you have been offered a place on the course by a licensed student Sponsor, you will be assigned a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (“CAS”). It is important to note that you must apply for your Child Student Visa within 6 months of receiving your CAS.

If you are applying from outside the UK, you must apply for your Child Student Visa no earlier than 6 months before you start your course. If you are applying from within the UK, you must apply for your Child Student Visa no earlier than 3 months before you start your course.
