LAHORE: Presentation on new UK student visa policy

A RENOWNED education consultant giving a presentation on salient features of New UK Visa Rules on Wednesday explained in detail the new Points Based System TIER 4 Student Visa.

The event titled “New Student Visa Rules & Scholarship Opportunities in UK” was organised by Falcon Education & Consultancy Services (Pvt) Ltd at a five star hotel in which students, academics, heads of educational institutions and people from various walks of life participated.

The educationalist, Syed Abidi said, “The new system if implemented in true spirit will weed out non-genuine students and facilitate bonafide students without the support of agents or consultants.”

He explained the basic concept of Points Based System (PBS) and the need for implementing this system by the UK Border Agency (UKBA).

He talked about different TIER structures and categories under the new PBS but focused on TIER 4 Student Visa. He said under the new TIER 4 the students would be awarded 40 points to be successful for an adult student visa, adding the universities/education providers in UK would now be known as sponsors and shall take full responsibility as a host for all overseas students.

“All students accepted by UK sponsors will be issued with CAS or a Visa letter which will carry 30 points and will be a must to apply for a visa”, he said adding, “However, the student will have to satisfy the Education Providers that he/she is a bonafide and genuine student both academically and financially”.

“The UKBA staff at country posts will then verify and conduct verification and authentication of the documents both academic and financial to award 10 points making it a total of 40 points”, he added.

Syed Abidi, who was awarded Tamgha-i-Imtiaz by the President of Pakistan in 2008, also explained the responsibility and obligation of students when they arrived in the UK and stressed that the new PBS allowed the university and the UK Border Agency to monitor and keep a track of all overseas students. “Therefore, non-genuine students can be easily tracked “, he added.

The event also highlighted scholarship opportunities while a question-answer session was also held in the end in which the participants actively participated.

    Nasir Butt there might be a problem with u during the interview. No a days a lot of students being rejected because of their gap in studies. You must fill your gap before applying.
