International students outside the UK or EU need a student visa to conquer their dreams and hopes to study in the UK and achieve a worldwide recognized and valuable UK Degree. A student can only apply for a student visa if he/she intends to have a full-time course, part-time courses for international students are not applicable for the visa.
UK student visa can be applied only if a student gets 40 points that are achieved on the basis of the following category:
Confirmation of Course
Course confirmation is to be received by Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from the university that has been approved by the UK Visa and Immigration. This factor will count for 30 points.
Evidence of funding
The funding category makes up for 10 points. If you can prove your capacity to pay your monthly living expenses and the tuition fees, then only you are eligible to apply for the visa.
Application of Visa
International students need to apply for a visa and submit the visa application form online. Visa application center will also take your biometric information as part of your application.
All students outside Europe need to pay their immigration health service charge while submitting a visa application online to gain an approach to the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).
A student receiving 40 points on the basis of the above-mentioned points is eligible for a UK Student Visa. Apart from this, an applicant has to show that they have the required level of English for their visa. To prove your ability of English language skills, you have to use the list of approved English language tests that meet the Home office’s requirements.
Rejection of Visa on false data claim
Gaining UK Visa after all these hardships and long process and losing it on the blame of showing false data can be devastating for foreign students. The home office has discovered cheating at the English language test centers. More than 36,000 students visas have been canceled, and while staying in the country, the students are not allowed to work or use the National Health Service.
The English Test Scandal came in the knowledge of the Home Office when it ordered the US firm, Educational Testing Service (ETS) to give a check on the test centers. More than 58,000 tests were taken between 2011 and 2014. The results were disgraceful as the voice-recognition software showed that proxy test-takers were used for the tests.
The cases were 30,000, where this cheating happened. The Home Office has been sticking to its decision because they have an opinion regarding the testing results, which indicates that the cheating was systematic, which is an indication of significant fraud that is organized and planned.
The step of UK rejecting foreign student visa on showing false data is indeed harsh on the side of an innocent student who came to Britain with a trust of receiving a decent education and have been falsely accused of showing wrong data or cheating, and they are in great despair.
