UK Visas and Immigration manages the UK visa requirements and the necessary immigration rules. All foreign nationals have to have a visa to study in the UK, except for Swiss nationals and those from the EU/EEA. The result of the UK’s referendum on membership in the EU has led to some confusion over visa regulations and rules, but the UK government has stated there will be no change to the rights and status of EU citizens until 2021.
A student over the age of 18 years and wants to pursue a short course, then he/she may be eligible for the short-term study visa. The short-term visa is valid for about 6 months for almost all short courses and can be extended for a stay of up to 11 months for English language courses.
A student who wishes to pursue a long-term course, the student needs to make sure that the chosen institute holds a tier-4 sponsor License. The student can apply for either of the two visas a Tier 4(child) student visa (if you’re aged 4-17 and want to study at an independent school in the UK) or a Tier 4(general) student visa for those aged 16 and over.
In some cases, the student’s course provider may help out the student to apply for a UK student visa, when the student has already been offered a place in the desired course; a student must make sure of this beforehand. The most appropriate time to start applying for the visa is three months in advance of the start of the day of the course. It’s a good idea to check up on the processing time for India, but we at GKWorks take care of all these details so that the student need not be worried.
UK student visas are awarded on a points-based system. In order to meet all the UK student visa requirements, the student will need to provide:

Best thing about Vivek Gupta Sir is his selfless counselling. As I am already a BSC/ MSC, he suggested me to go to Philippines as I was able to get straight admission into MD and this finishes my entire course in 4 years flat. In any other country, it would have taken by 5.5-6 years. Ms Kanimojhi in Chennai office of GKWorks was equally supportive in coordination regarding documents, departure and all other formalities.
We live 100 Km’s away from Varanasi. The internet connection in our town is very weak and my parents are not that educated. For us, understanding the word RTGS was also very difficult. Thanks to Amit Pandey Sir, who is Gkworks Varanasi incharge, he helped us to do all small things. Going with us to get forex to helping us doing RTGS for fee payment, he was always there with us. He only helped us to apply for passport online and went with us to passport office Varanasi. Such support at ground level was provided by GKworks team both in Varanasi and Delhi.
My parents were not very comfortable to send me abroad especially my mother as I am the only son of my parents. I really wanted to become a doctor and thus approached Hemant Mishra Sir, director of Bareilly branch of GKWorks. He went out of his way to convince my mother. He would have come 5 times to my home, invited us to his office and home 10 times before my mother was finally convinced. It is only due to Hemant Sir in Bareilly that I am pursuing my course today. I wish GKworks and especially Bareilly branch all the very best to help many more students for their life dreams.
