If you have accepted an offer to study in the UK, you will need to obtain a Student visa for permission to begin your studies. This blog will discuss how we can assist you with an application for a Student visa.
Firstly, you will need to be issued with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (‘CAS’) by your course provider (please see our blog What is a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies? to learn more). Once you have been issued with a CAS, you will need to apply for your Student visa within 6 months of the date of issue.
We can assess your CAS to confirm your course is at the appropriate level to meet the Home Office eligibility requirements. We will also consider how you can meet the other requirements, including the financial and English language requirements. We will advise you on the appropriate documentation and discuss any potential issues.
Additionally, we will prepare and submit the online application form on your behalf, liaise with you to prepare the supporting documents, and arrange the biometric appointment. We will also prepare a letter of representations to the Home Office demonstrating how each requirement is met.
Following the approval of the application, we offer guidance regarding entering the UK and further information about your new immigration status.
