Student visa process
Visa application criteria
Once a sponsor is satisfied that the student has met the necessary criteria for attendance on a particular course of study, it will issue the applicant a ‘Certificate of Acceptance of Studies’ (normally referred to as a CAS). The CAS is an electronic document that contains details about the course as well the applicant’s personal details. It also provides important information that will be required for the visa application and defines some of the supporting documents that will need to be sent with the application. A CAS must be issued before a Tier 4 application is submitted and can only be used once.
If, for example, there is a problem and a Tier 4 application is refused, then the Tier 4 sponsor will need to issue a new CAS before a fresh application can be made. Once a CAS has been issued it remains valid for 6 months. The CAS will specify the start date of the course and therefore the earliest date that a Tier 4 visa can be applied for. Applicants cannot submit a Tier 4 application more than three months before the start date of their course of study.
How Long Do You Have To Make An Injury At Work Claim?
You may be able to make an accident at work claim if you’ve been injured as a result of health and safety procedures not being followed. In some instances you may even be able to claim if you caused the accident, for instance if your injuries were made worse because of a piece of faulty equipment.
It may also be possible to claim if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse. Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work. In practice this means that they have a responsibility to:
Make sure you’re properly trained
Provide you with suitable work and personal protective equipment
Undertake risk assessments
Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
Provide safe working systems
