New Tier 4 English Requirements from Today

UK Immigration has already made a number of significant changes to the UK tier 4 visa scheme for students including changes to the English language requirements:

If you wish apply for student visas under Tier 4 (General) from Today or after 12 August 2010 for courses below NQF Level 6 you must be with English language ability at a minimum of level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This excludes Foundation Degree courses or an English language course.

This implies Courses at NQF level 6 and above need not have the above English requirement but universities might ask such students to provide an evidence of their proficiency in English Language, popularly the IELTS
