Dos and don’ts while applying for student visas
Posted on September 16, 2016
Increasing numbers of graduate students from India are opting to study abroad these days. But some have got into messy situations and were deported for no fault of theirs.
Let us see how students can avoid that in the future.
The first thing one should do is to not let somebody else take charge of your application process. For instance, many recruitment consultants suggest a university to you without having much knowledge about the field of your study. Some of them might be good, but you should not depend on them for certain things for which you can only be your best judge. Some devious agents may recommend an institution just because they may be paid to recruit you. Therefore, it is preferable for you to be the decision maker. So, do some research and be aware of the educational institution’s credential before you apply.
Make sure to also understand university application and visa application processes. You could research such information via college search engines and services offered by universities through diplomatic missions of different countries.
Do not fall into the trap of submitting false certificates as some agents may suggest. Most of the accredited universities browse through applications numbering thousands every year. They have a nose for detecting anything fishy, which might get you blacklisted.
Do not exaggerate your qualifications by submitting false work certificates, because if you are unlucky they may want to do a background check by contacting your non-existent employer.
Apply for a student visa only if you are seriously interested in pursuing studies. If you want to go there to work apply for a different visa category.
