Book an appointment
Visit the UK government's visas and immigration website to find out what visa you need. From this website you will be able to complete your online visa application form, pay the relevant visa application fee and book your appointment to submit your application at the VFS Global visa application centre.
IMPORTANT: As part of the visa application procedure, you shall be finger-printed at the VFS Global visa application centre. If you have temporary injuries on your fingers, do not take an appointment until the injuries have healed. Please ensure that there is no coating of henna (or similar) on your hands or fingers on date of visit to the VFS Global visa application centre.
Please note - Only those applicants that have applied as a T4 General Student should chose a T4 appointment slot. ALL other applicants should choose a standard appointment.
Those attending the Visa Application Centre for a T4 General Student appointment who have not applied in that category may be required to reschedule their appointment on a later date.
Tier 4 applicant interviews
If you are applying for a Tier 4 student visa, you may be required to sit a short interview when you attend the visa application centre to submit your application and biometric information. The interview will focus on your reasons for coming to the UK and is known as a credibility interview. An entry clearance officer will consider this interview alongside your visa application and supporting documents. You may be called for a further interview if the visa officer needs more information.
IMPORTANT: Before booking a visa application centre (VAC) appointment on AccessUK , you will be asked to confirm the type of appointment you want. If you are applying for a visa type other than Tier 4, you should not choose the ‘Tier 4 applicants’ option. Please note Tier 4 dependents and Tier 4 (Child) should not choose Tier 4 applicants.
