29 October 2012
Student visa applications made in India from 1 November 2012 must be accompanied by a valid tuberculosis (TB) clearance certificate for visas longer than 6 months. You do not need a TB clearance certificate if you are coming to the UK on a 6 month student visitor visa.
The TB screening requirement was first announced on this wesite in August 2012 and the start date for students was set after the main recruitment period for UK higher education institutions ended.
