F-1 Student Visa Process
Get Accepted by a UK University
After applying and getting accepted into the school you want to attend in the UK. Proceed to start the online application on the UK Government website before appearing at a Visa Application Center in your country to submit your biometrics. Your university will send you a reference number called a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies to use in your online registration after paying the tuition fee deposit.
Prepare Your Required Documents
Anyone applying from overseas will need evidence of funding for tuition fees and your living expenses, including accommodation. Make sure you have your original academic certificates and transcripts, and English language test certificate if needed. Your CAS will confirm which documents you need to submit as evidence.
Complet and Submit Your Application
To submit the online application, you must pay the visa application fee and the Immigration Health Surcharge for your full period of study. You will make an appointment to submit your biometrics and documents at a visa application centre. It takes usually around 3 weeks to get a decision on your visa.
Arrange Your Travel & Collect Your BRP
When your visa application has been processed, your passport will be sent back to you with a vignette (sticker) added to a blank page. It will also come with a decision letter confirming that your application has been successful. After the travelling to the UK, you must collect your biometric residence permit (BRP) within 10 days of arrival. Bring your passport with the entry vignette and your visa decision letter with you.
