You need a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies
To be granted a Student Visa in the UK, you must be awarded 70 points in total, 50 of which for meeting all Study requirements. One of these requirements is to have been issued with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies satisfying all the below conditions.
Your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies must have been issued by a student sponsor whose license is still valid on the date on which your application is decided. That means that your application will be refused if between the date on which you submit your application and the date on which your application is decided your sponsor’s license is revoked.
The Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies which you use in your application for a Student Visa must not have been used previously in a similar application which was either granted or refused. More about it in this post.
Your sponsor must not have withdrawn your offer after the date that the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies was issued.
The Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies must contain the necessary information and must state the cost of any accommodation provided by the sponsor and fees (and any payment already made) so that the financial requirement can be assessed.
Your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies must show how the English language requirement has been met, and where your sponsor has assessed your English language ability. Where a Secure English Language Test is required, the name of the test provider, the unique reference number for the test and the score for each component tested (reading, writing, listening, speaking) must be included on the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies.
