hi ,

I am looking for some advice regarding my case. First I would like to explain my case and then put forward my queries.

I am on Tier 1 Post Study Work permit which expires in 18June2010 and am working in Glasgow . Recently my wife had also come from India to Galsgow on Dependent Visa. As she intends to study so she had taken admission in Caledonian University in Glasgow.
As far as I know she will have to go to India to move into Student Visa when my visa expires. Therefore we both are planning to go to India during easter holidays to apply for her student visa and I will Switch over to Dependent visa. The reason we cannot go to India now to switch the category is, that we have to fulfill the financial funds clause (600*9+400*9 = 5400+3600=9000+ the full payed fees), as we live in glasgow. Please let me know if i am wrong
My queries are-

Do I have to go to India as well to switch from Post study work permit to Depedent visa??

Is she allowed to study on Dependent Visa(in uk) ??and then switch to Student Visa(from home country)?

Do I have to show any extra funds apart from the one stated above?

Will my full time job, accomodation proof (as i am living here for 4 years)provide any extra strength to my wife and my visa application?

Hi,
I have already taken advice from Victoria regarding my case. But I have 2 more questions to ask.

My wife is on dependent visa on my PSW permit which run out in June 2010. Now as she had taken admission in a MSc course in Caledonian university(A Rating) ,Glasgow. Therefore we both are planning to go to India in end of march to apply for her student visa and then I will be her dependent.

The course start date is - 25 Jan 2010, and end date is - 31 Jan 2011 (12 months.)

ques 1 -Therefore how long will be the visa issued for if we apply in march 2010? will it be total course length + 4 months?

ques 2-Is it true that the dependent can only work if the visa of the main applicant is more then 12 months?

Many Thanks in Advance
Kind regards
Jagpreet

2.Yes.


So does that mean that the visa will be issued for the remaining course lenght (which is from april till 31 jan , as i will be applying in 28march 2010) + 4 months= 10+4=14 months???

Yes and yes.

I advise you check paragraph 67 of the Tier 4 guidance. It is a table showing exactly how long leave is granted for.

The link has been provided by GOL above. Follow the link and you will get the answers from authority.Its very clear in there.
The visa could be issued for the full length of the course(as mentioned in the visa letter) plus 4 months.The length of visa given depends upon the type,length of the course and the time left for the completion of the course when you apply.

Hi,
My wife is on PSW permit which is valid for other 10 months. In her past she had been on student visa for 1 and half years doing Msc in finance.
She wishes to do higher studies in her field. If she opts for CIMA accounting qualification for business, will she be eligible for Tier 4 student visa?
if yes, how long will be the visa valid for?
if no, then is there any link to find what level courses she can do after MSc? To be eligible to get Tier 4 student visa for atleast 2 and half years.

Any new course needs to show academic progression on the previous course she studied under Tier 4. She needs to ask the course provider about this: whether they are happy to sponsor her, and how long the course is. No-one here would know that.

Why is she making a Tier 4 application if you are planning an ILR application?
