TIER 4 (GENERAL) STUDENT VISAS
If you are 16 or over and want to study at higher education level, you will need to apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa.
You need to wait until you have an offer from a university or college before applying for your Tier 4 (General) student visa. Your university or college will then be able to give you a document called a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). To do this, your chosen institution needs to be approved by the UK government as a ‘licensed Tier 4 sponsor’.
Canada Study Visa
To study full time in Canada you need a study visa at the Embassy or Consulate of Canada in your home country. Canadian study visa is for additional years beyond the study period. If your degree or diploma is for 4 year, you will get an additional 3 year visa. You will need to have an acceptance letter from a DLI approved institution to apply for study visa.

What’s a good time to apply for Visa?
Speaking of the appropriate time, there is no fixed period where you should make the visa application, but it is highly recommended to do it early enough in advance from your planned travel to your study destination.
Typically, 3 (three) months before the start of planned studies, worked suitably for many who already went through the same experience. It’s important to give yourself enough time to apply for visa.
