Studying in the UK

UK immigration law is constantly changing and, therefore, specialist advice is essential.

The UK has some of the finest educational establishments in the world; educating students from primary school right through to PhD level. If you are not a UK or EEA citizen however, you will need to get clearance in order to take advantage of the educational opportunities afforded by the UK. It is worth seeking expert advice to find out what your options are. Specialist solicitors will also ensure that your application for a visa to study in the UK contains all the required information.

Unfortunately, sometimes things happen that may affect your studies and your leave to remain in the UK as a student. It is worth remembering that sometimes the Home Office is less flexible than educational establishments about taking time out from your studies for compassionate reasons. Expert advice would help you to fully understand your options and the immigration consequences of choices you are making.

If you do not demonstrate how you satisfy the requirements of leave to enter or remain in the UK as a student, your application for a UK visa may be refused. You may then find yourself unable to begin, continue or complete your chosen course.

The Home Office provides international student Guidance in respect of the relevant requirements. However, please do not assume that the words used in this Guidance or the Immigration Rules are always interpreted in the way you might interpret them. Some apparently ordinary words may have a different or specific meaning when applied by the Home Office or once clarified by the tribunals and courts.

Unfortunately, if you make a serious mistake in your application (however innocent or unintentional), not only that your application may be refused but you may also be banned from the UK for up to 10 years. Due to the potential exchange of information between different countries, an application refused by the UK Home Office may also affect your chances of getting a visa for other countries. It is, therefore, always much better to properly prepare and invest in the initial application. This should secure a positive and desired outcome first time and avoid significant negative consequences (including extra costs, delays, stress and bans) for failing to do so.

Investing in specialist knowledge will enable you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed. It could also prevent you from making costly mistakes or missing opportunities. If you need advice on a UK student visa, contact our expert team of immigration solicitors today.
