University: Applying for a Student Visa

Luckily this isn’t something I have had to personally worry about, but talking to friends and colleagues it can be the bane of some students’ lives. Complicated, time consuming – it doesn’t sound an easy process!

TR InfographicI actually lived with a lot of international students in my first year (though I didn’t exactly enjoy my living situation!) and I didn’t have a clue how lengthy the visa process was! I can’t imagine having to jump through all those hoops ‘just’ to go to university – it’s made me think how lucky we are in the UK really. UCAS may be a pain, SFE might have seen me swear at it multiple times, but it’s a lot simpler!

How were people’s experiences in applying to university, student visa or not?

  • Thanks for this! Unfortunately, I’m “technically” an international student, although I’ve been living in the UK for the past three years, so I’m in the process of sorting this whole visa thing out. I might have to wait until my current visa expires (next year) to apply for a student one! Hopefully everything will go well. x

      Ah, that must be a nightmare! Good luck! x

  • Preparing for uni was stressy enough so I can’t imagine what it’s like for international students having to organise this too! x
