Apply for a Tier 4 student visa from outside the UK

If you are coming to the UK to study on a Tier 4 student visa for the first time, you must apply for your visa in your home country before you travel.

If you are already studying in the UK, you may be able to apply for your Tier 4 student visa from inside the UK. If you do not meet the conditions for applying from inside the UK, you must apply from outside the UK.
