Posted on August 23, 2016
With UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, dropping hints of enforcing stricter rules for student visas, it is better for students to be well prepared while applying for a student visa in the UK. There is no gainsaying the fact that Great Britain continues to be a good study destination, but in the present scenario, it is better to be cautious when applying for it.
Study International has listed out some ‘no-nos’ for students.
It advises them to make sure that they enter relevant and genuine information in the form. If you want to apply online, you can so through the Visa4UK automated system.
If one is not sure on how to go about it, they could take the help of experts who are well-versed in UK immigration law and processes for a nominal fee.
When filling out requisite information, it should be ensured that it is unambiguous and there is no room for misinterpretation. It advises students to spell out all acronyms. Avoid submitting a new application when they are processing your visas.
Study carefully all immigration rules and procedures and get information on the university one is applying to. Many foreign students would need to go through an interview at a visa application centre as only students of certain countries do not need to go through that process.
It is advised that students have knowledge about the universities they apply to, before being interviewed.
Students need to submit all supporting documents to hasten the processing of their application.
The documents you should submit would include current passport or any other legal travel documentation; evidence of having sufficient funds to support oneself and paying tuition fees; proof of consent from a parent/guardian if one is younger than 18; and evidence showing that you are not afflicted with tuberculosis ( needed only for certain countries).
