The UK has launched a new Tier 4 visa pilot scheme for international students, allowing them to extend their stay in the UK for six months and also submit fewer documents in their application.
The scheme was launched by the UK Home Office in July and is aimed at students who enroll on a Masters degree of 13 months or less at Imperial College London, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and University of Bath.The scheme is open for 2016-17 (for visa applications submitted on or after July 25) and 2017-18 intakes and students applying from inside the UK as well as from overseas.
Professor Alice Gast of Imperial College London, said: “This pilot scheme is an encouraging step forward. The ability to stay on for six months will bring benefits to the students and to the country as our talented graduates will be able to pursue their entrepreneurial ideas, further study or add to the UK’s talent pool.”

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
