The UK Border Agency has announced major changes to Tier 4 student visa requirements. 

On 12 August 2010 the government will implement secure English language tests for students under Tier 4 (General) of the points-based system.

If a Tier 4 (General) student will be studying a course that is below NQF Level 6 (except a Foundation Degree or an English language course), using a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) issued on or after 12 August 2010, their Tier 4 sponsor must first ensure that they are competent in English language at a minimum of level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) by showing that they:

  • are from a majority English-speaking country (as listed on the Can you apply to Tier 4 (General)? page; or
  • have successfully completed a course as a Tier 4 (Child) student (or under the student rules that were in force before 31 March 2009, if they were granted permission to stay while they were under 18 years old) which lasted at least six months or ended no more than two years before the date when the sponsor would assign the CAS; or
  • have passed an English language test with an approved test provider for Tier 4, and has achieved at least CEFR level B1 in all four components (reading, writing, speaking and listening). You can download a list of approved test providers from the right side of this page.

The changes to the English Language requirement will be set out in revised Tier 4 policy guidance and sponsor guidance, which will be published on Friday 23 July.
