If you are already in the UK as a Tier 4 General student, you can apply for extension/renewal of your Tier 4 General student visa. Tier 4 General students cannot spend more than 5 years in the UK studying graduate and post graduate level courses. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule and by virtue of such exceptions, it is possible for students to stay longer than 5 years in the UK as Tier 4 General students.

To apply for Tier 4 General extension, you will have to enrol for a course with an educational institution known as Tier 4 Sponsor and your Tier 4 Sponsor needs to issue you with Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). Your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) should confirm that your new course reflects an accademic progression in your studies. You also have to meet the English language requirement as well as the funds for maintenance requirement for your renewal application to succeed.

You can apply for Tier 4 General Student visa renewal online as there is no paper form for the renewal of Tier 4 General student visa.
