Visa Advice and Information

Applying for your visa

Depending on which course you are applying to study at Newcastle College, you need to decide which type of visa to apply for.

Tier 4 (General) is the main immigration route for study. If you want to study a full-time course which is longer than 6 months in duration you need to obtain a Tier 4 General visa. All non-EEA nationals wishing to travel to the UK on Tier 4 must obtain entry clearance prior to leaving their home country.

Tier 4 entry clearance is confirmed as a yellow sticker in your passport known as a vignette. Once you have this sticker in your passport you can travel to the UK.

Newcastle College is now listed on the Tier 4 Sponsor Register as NCG. Please see the updated Tier 4 Sponsor register.

Newcastle College is a division of NCG. The sponsor and main site of study address remains the same (Rye Hill Campus, Scotswood Road, Newcastle upon-Tyne, NE4 7SA). Therefore, the sponsor name which will appear on the CAS of Tier 4 students will now read NCG.
