- From 5 October 2020, the Student route will replace the Tier 4 route
- The Student route, which falls under the UK's new points-based immigration system, improves on the previous Tier 4 route making for a more streamlined experience for both sponsoring institutions and students
- TheTier 4 visa is being phased out. All new and prospective students (who do not already have a visa or have not already received a CAS) will apply for a visa via the new Student route
- Visas that have been issued through the Tier 4 route are still valid and those eligible will still be able to apply for the Graduate Route when it opens in summer 2021
- The Graduate Route will be available to international students who have completed a degree at undergraduate level or above at a Higher Education Provider with a track record of compliance and who have a valid Student (or Tier 4) visa at the time of application.
