If you are a national that qualifies to use an electronic passport gate at the airport (Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and the USA), please do not do so if you have a Tier 4 student visa. You should be informed at the airport to make your way to speak to a Border Force Officer but please remember this. Entry through the electronic gate will only confer leave to enter as a Standard Visitor i.e. as a tourist. This may affect your ability to register at the University for your chosen course.
