Query on UK dependant VISA based on Student VISA

Post by jeet_sp » Sun Dec 30, 2018 11:32 pm

Hi,
I am currently living in UK, holding Tier2-ICT VISA, which will expire soon. As I am not eligible to move to Tier2-General VISA, can any one please let me know, if my wife can get a student VISA and if I can get the dependant VISA then to stay in UK. Also, if its possible - then what kind of courses ( if part time/full time) are there, which she can target for this purpose. Thanks in advance.

Note:
You must have:
an unconditional offer of a place on a course with a licensed Tier 4 sponsor
enough money to support yourself and pay for your course - the amount will vary depending on your circumstances

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.

Your wife as she is a dependant of your visa is not eligible for switching over to Tier 4 if applying within UK. She will have to return to your country and apply for a fresh Tier 4 visa. On the other hand, you are eligible to switch over to Tier 4.
