    LONDON: Britain on Thursday announced lifting of temporary suspension on Tier 4 (General Student) Visa applications from students in North India, nearly six months after it stopped issuing visas in three centres in the region.

    An official announcement said with immediate effect, Child Students may apply for Tier 4 visas in North India.

    On August 12, the UK Border Agency will further lift the suspension on the remaining courses below degree, with the exception of English language courses.

    The UK Border Agency will continue to keep the suspension of English language courses under review.

    The temporary suspension of all new Tier 4 applications was implemented on February 1, 2010 in three application centres in North India - Jalandhar, Chandigarh and New Delhi.

    The suspension was partially lifted on March 2 for foundation degrees and degree and postgraduate courses.

    A foundation degree means a programme of study which leads to a qualification awarded by a UK higher education institution with degree awarding powers, which is at a minimum of level 5 on the revised National Qualifications Framework.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
