The education system in the UK is considered as a global benchmark of quality. Each year hundreds of thousands of students come to study in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Higher education is a great benefit of the country’s economy, which is why the British government has created transparent conditions for obtaining a visa for international students
Although distance learning is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, visa problems are still relevant for many students from overseas. UII gathered for its blog readers four simple rules that will help effortlessly get a visa to study in the UK:
In most cases you need Tier 4 General student visa. This visa means that you are offered a place on a course and you can understand, write, speak and read in English. Very important is to have enough money to support yourself and pay for your course. Also, you can apply for Short-term study visa, if you’re doing a short course of study in Great Britain.
The other important recommendation for applicants is to carefully analyze the financial side of their studies and make sure that the chosen one is really the most appropriate for you. And only then begin the visa application procedures. Many practical and interesting cases can be found on local Internet forums and blogs, where other prospective students share their experiences. There you can learn about some unforeseen problems and common mistakes to avoid.
Another story you have to know is the intermediaries business: some companies may say that they are giving a guarantee of visa issuing for “some additional money”. Any mediator has no right to do this and when someone gives you these promises you can be sure that it is dishonest companies that earn on inexperienced students. Of course, there are reputable companies who simply advise applicants, but, believe us, the UK government is doing their best in order to give you all the information on the Internet and successfully obtain a visa to study by your own.
After all, if you are denied a visa, or you do not have enough money for full-time study at a British university, you can choose a distance education programs in the UK. Now online courses are gaining popularity worldwide. And almost all universities are offering different degree courses online. If your goal is a quality education, but not the permanent residence in England, then getting online degree is a far-sighted decision.
