Tier 4 Visa

To study in the UK, it is mandatory for an Indian student to obtain a Tier 4 visa. It is also demanded that the tuition fees for the first academic year be paid in full. If you are not willing to pay the full fee for the first year, it is expected that you submit proof of your financial stability with documents amounting to 9 months worth of living costs.  This increases the cost of studying in the UK for Indian students.
