New Tier 4 policy guidance

17 November 2015

At 5:18pm yesterday (Monday 16 November) the Home Office published new Tier 4 policy guidance. This guidance confirms that the 12 November changes to the Immigration Rules will not be applied to Tier 4 applications made on 12 or 13 November. Instead the new guidance is to be used for all Tier 4 applications made on or after 14 November.

If you made a Tier 4 application between 14 November (when the new Rules came into force) and 5:18pm on 16 November (when the new guidance became available), and you are concerned that your application does not meet the new requirements, for example the higher maintenance levels, then you should speak to a student adviser at your institution immediately.
