Home International Students Immigration Protecting your Tier 4 status

Protecting your Tier 4 status

This section is for anyone who has, or who is applying for, Tier 4 leave. We say "Tier 4 leave" rather than "a Tier 4 visa" because your Tier 4 permission can be in the form of a visa or an entry clearance vignette which you applied for in your home country, or it can be a residence permit vignette in your passport, or a Biometrics Residence permit (BRP) card which you were issued in the UK.

Tier 4 has some conditions attached, which are printed on your vignette or BRP. There are also some requirements and obligations related to the Immigration Rules, and related to your studies and your Tier 4 sponsor. This section explains all of these, plus some general good practice for protecting and maintaining your Tier 4 status.
