Guidance on applying

Read the Home Office information for student dependants.

We also recommend that you read the UKCISA advice and there is information at the end of this Home Office document (PDF) too.

You must read this information very carefully. If you do not Home Office are likely to refuse or reject your application without giving you a chance to correct any mistakes on the form or send in any further documents.
