Indian Student applying for schengen visa
I'm an Indian student currently studying in England under the Tier 4 Visa. My UK Visa expires on 4 Feb 2017 and I'm planning to visit Paris in October,2016. Do I have to apply for the Schengen visa at least 6 months before my Tier 4 UK Visa expires? Is it okay if I start applying for it in September? Please Help.
