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.

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.
