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.

As part of the visa application procedure, you will need to provide electronic fingerprint data along with a digital photograph. If you have temporary injuries on your finger, please wait until the injuries have healed before you book your appointment. Henna on fingertips may also mean we are unable to get a clear scanned image and should be removed or allowed to fade before your appointment date.
