One of the most overlooked aspects of studying in the UK is the UK student visa application. Imagine you have done all the hard work required to get admitted to a top university in the UK. Your family in Chandigarh is proud and you are ready to fly into the sky with your new career and new life. And finally, when you are dreaming about your new life, you get the news that your UK student visa application has been rejected…

That sounds like a nightmare, right? And indeed, many Indian students have faced such nightmares in their lives. In our line of work as UK student visa consultants in Chandigarh, it’s heartbreaking to see students come to us after their application has been rejected. Our thought is always the same: why did they not come to us BEFORE applying?

UK Student Visa application

If you have been accepted into a university in the UK, and are about to apply for a UK student visa, please consider taking professional help to guide you through your application.

In order to be eligible to study in the UK, you must first apply for a Tier 4 (General) student visa online. For this application to be successful, you must provide the required list of documents necessary for being eligible for the Tier 4 Visa. The list of these documents and other requirements can be found by consulting a professional UK immigration consultant.

You would then be required to visit the visa application centre, from where you will get your biometric information (fingerprints and photograph) taken. You have to collect your biometric residence permit ten days prior to the date that you said you would arrive in the UK in your application form.

As a holder of the student visa, you are eligible to extend the duration of your visa under certain circumstances. These circumstances range from an unforeseen increase in the time you require to complete your course in the UK, to you choosing to extend your course of study to a degree of a higher level (Masters, Ph.D., etc)

There are certain UK visa categories that also allow for the applicant to switch into the UK Tier 4 Student Visa. Once again, this depends on the circumstances of the specific application in question.

As you can see, the permutations and combinations to understand in applying for a UK student visa are many. It’s no surprise then that the UK student visa application is the stage at which countless aspiring UK students from Chandigarh have their dreams shattered, albeit temporarily.
