There are two student categories under Tier 4 of the points-based system. Both categories must meet the full requirements of the Immigration Rules and must have a total of 40 points. 30 points are awarded for valid Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from a fully licensed Tier 4 sponsor and 10 points are awarded for maintenance or funds (having enough money to cover course fees and monthly living costs).
Before making an application, it is important that you determine if an education institution is a fully licensed Tier 4 sponsor from the register of sponsors. A list of these sponsors can be found on the Home Office website which provides you the name, location and rating of the institutions.
