HOW YOU CAN BRING YOUR FAMILY TO THE UK AS A STUDENT.

Only some types of Tier 4 (General) student can bring family to the UK as dependants, and only some types of family member count as dependants. We explain below.



Which Tier 4 (General) students can bring family to the UK?

You can bring certain family members to the UK as your Tier 4 dependant if:
You are government-sponsored and your course is longer than six months OR
You are doing a postgraduate level course of 12 months or longer at a publicly-funded Higher Education Institution or a 'recognised body' (see Definitions) OR
Your current or most recent immigration permission was as a Tier 4 (General) student or a pre-Tier 4 student on a course longer than six months AND all four bullet points below apply:
your permission is current or expired no more than three months before this immigration application AND
your new immigration application is for a course that is longer than six months AND
your dependants already have Tier 4 dependant or 'student' dependant immigration permission (or it is the most recent immigration permission that they had, and it expired no more than three months before this application) AND
you apply for immigration permission at the same time as your dependant

The other requirement you must meet is that you already have your Tier 4 (General) immigration permission, or you are applying for it in the same country where your dependant is making their application, at the same time as them.

Tier 4 (Child) students cannot bring family members to the UK as their dependants. UKCISA
