New Home Office guide to Tier 4 student applications
A welcome effort by the Home Office to explain and encourage Tier 4 student applications:
The UK recognises the important contribution international students make, and welcomes those who wish to study at our world-class institutions. This leaflet is designed to provide you with some information about the Tier 4 visa routes for those wishing to study in the UK. It also provides information on the routes for short-term study.
However, it has been pointed out that the Top Tips are perhaps misleading because they seem to imply that students can rely on funds held by relatives and others:
@ColinYeo1 Concerned that Top Tips suggest that maintenance can be held in accts of other family members. Already many refusals in this area
