Applying for a UK student visa marks a significant milestone in your academic journey. Navigating through the application process might seem complex, but with the right guidance and preparation you can streamline the process and enhance your chances of success.

In this blog post we’ll delve into essential tips and insights to assist you throughout the application journey, covering everything from document preparation to meeting eligibility criteria.

Step 1 – Accept your Unconditional Offer from the University: Once you have received your high school/college exam results ensure you notify the university immediately and secure your unconditional offer.

Step 2 – Obtain Your Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS): Once you’ve received and accepted your unconditional offer, the university will provide you with a Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) for a nominal fee of £25. You require your CAS code for your student visa application.

Step 3 – Initiate the Visa Application Process: With your CAS in hand, you can start the visa application process. You can apply for your student visa up to six months before your course starts. Ensure you have a current passport (with a spare blank page) and be prepared to pay the application fee (£490 for students).

Step 4 – Calculate Your Fees and Pay the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS): As part of your application you’ll need to pay the IHS. The surcharge for a student visa amounts to £776 per year for each full year of your stay.

Step 5 – Financial Requirements:

  • Course Fee: You must be able to demonstrate you have enough money to pay for your course for one academic year (up to 9 months), as specified in your CAS.
  • Living Expenses: You’ll need to demonstrate sufficient funds to support yourself during your studies. The required amount varies based on your study location:
    • £1,023 per month (up to 9 months) for courses outside London.
    • £1,334 per month (up to 9 months) for courses in London.

Step 6 – Complete and Submit Your Application Before Arrival: Ensure you complete and have your application accepted before arriving in the UK.

By following these steps and meeting the financial requirements, you’ll be well-prepared to apply for your student visa and embark on your student-athlete experience with UNIPRO.

Remember, investing time and effort into understanding the process can make all the difference in ensuring a successful application and we’re here to help every step of the way.
