Actually, I think that rule has changed. I think the new Tier 4 visa rules basically state that you have to leave once your course ends. The new Tier 4 rules are very draconian.

I know all that is correct for my tier 4 that was issued in July 2014, but not sure if changes have been made since then.

The official Tier 4 policy guidance, version April 2015, still states that you get 4 months at the end of the course if the course is 12 months or more:

My mistake, perhaps it only applies to those staying for shorter periods.
It is difficult to speak adequately, or justly, of London. It is not a pleasant place; it is not agreeable, or easy, or exempt from reproach. It is only magnificent... the biggest aggregation of human life, the most complete compendium in the world.

Yeah my first tier 4 was only for 4 months and I only had a week to leave after my course ended. I think they like the idea of UK grads staying for skilled jobs so they give you time to find one on the longer visas.

Granted it is approaching three years since I received my Tier-4 visa for a Masters course (September 2012) but my course of study officially ended in September 2013 when I turned in my thesis while my visa expired on 30 January 2015 which was just after my graduation ceremony.
