Please don't forget that if you are applying for your Tier 4 visa from overseas (which will be valid for longer than 6 months), we recommend that you request for your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) to be sent directly to the University of Warwick, rather than to a Post Office. Your CAS email will include details of how to do this by inserting an ACL code (Alternative Collection Location) onto your Tier 4 application form.
On 13 July 2015, the UK Home Office officially announced that it will be making a number of changes to the Immigration Rules related to Tier 4 visas from July, August and November 2015. Headlines include:
1) for University students, Tier 4 Student Work Rights (during and after studies) will not be affected;
2) from 14 July 2015, Tier 4 visa 'valid from' date will be either 1 month before the course start date, or, 7 days before their 'intended travel date', whichever is later;
3) from 3 August 2015: new definition for 'Academic Progression' and changes in the calculation of the 'study cap';
4) from 12 November 2015: change in Tier 4 dependents' work right; increase of maintenance requirement for Tier 4 visa application from £820/month to £1015/month; and the provision of 'established presence' being removed.
