New Points-Based System for Student Entry Clearance to UK

At the end of March 2009, the UK Government has launched a new points–based system (PBS) for entry clearance for students who wish to study in UK. It has simpler requirements for those applying to study in UK, and should be easier to administer for agents and their clients.

The membership body for accredited schools of English, English UK, has published guidance on the new procedures which are very helpful. You can read this guidance here. (149 KB) We hope you find it useful.

For specific advice on entry clearance and visa formalities, please contact your nearest British Embassy or Consulate.
