Tier 4 visa

The Points-Based System (PBS) is the UK's main immigration route for nationals of countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland who wish to come to the UK to study or work. There are five tiers under the PBS, and Tier 4 is the category for students.

The University of Glasgow acts as a registered sponsor for students under Tier 4. Our Sponsor Licence Number is TRAW6PAA8.

The Tier 4 Compliance Team within the Registry is responsible for ensuring that a range of areas relating to the University’s licence and Tier 4 sponsor status are met.
