Good news for students with International Baccalaureate

19 August 2009

The UK Border Agency have made urgent provision for students relying on an International Baccalaureate qualification to enable these students to apply under Tier 4 of the points-based system.

Students relying on International Baccalaureate qualifications awarded on 5 July 2009 will not be issued with a paper transcript giving their results, and will not receive their award certificates in time to apply for United Kingdom university courses starting in September this year.

Thus, sponsors who assessed a student on the basis of an International Baccalaureate award awarded on 5 July 2009 must clearly explain in the student's confirmation of acceptance for studies/visa letter that it has confirmed the student's results using either the UCAS or International Baccalaureate Office online checking systems.

Those who already been issued the student's confirmation of acceptance for studies/visa letter, should obtian a separate letter explaining that their results were confirmed using either the UCAS or International Baccalaureate Office online checking systems.

When a student applies for their Tier 4 visa, they will need to provide a proof of their results from the UCAS or International Baccalaureate Office online checking service. Full details of the actions that students must take are explained in details in Tier 4 migrant guidance.
