Passport expires one week before the end of studies

Post by squirrel1 » Wed May 29, 2019 10:08 pm

Hello everyone
My masters start date is 1 October 2019 and the end date 30 September 2020. My current visa expiry date is 24 September 2020.
I will be fully sponsored by my government . Can I fill in the tier 4 online application form with this passport?
Can I get a visa even if the expiry date is earlier than the study end date? I want to get a new passport in the embassy in the UK, for example in August next year (not now).
Will I have any problem with the immigration officials at the airport?
Thank you for your help! :)

Thank you, Sah10406. (Sorry, I had sent a thank you note but I think it didn't go through).

A person told me that 4 years ago he was able to travel to the UK and was in my same situation.
Do you know if the info from https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control/be ... for-the-uk applies to me? It says "You’re not from an EEA country
You must have a valid passport to enter the UK. It should be valid for the whole of your stay."

You may also need a visa, depending on which country you’re from.

Maybe it doesn't apply to me because I will need a visa in order to travel?

Thank you for your help.

It doesn't apply to anyone -- it is wrong!
