To successfully apply for your Tier 4 Visa Extension you must currently hold a valid student visa (or other permitted visa) that is not expiring more than one month before your new course begins (if applicable) and you must have a points score of 40 as explained below.
You need 40 points to be able to apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa Extension. You will need to provide the evidence needed with your visa application form.
You will receive 30 points if you have:
A confirmation of acceptance for studies reference number issued by your approved education provider and the documents used to obtain it.
You will receive 10 points if you have:
Bank statements or letters confirming that you have enough funds to cover your tuition fees and living costs for a given period. You must be able to prove that the money has been available in your account for 28 days before the date you make your application.
