Student visa presentation

Please read through and listen to all relevant slides in the video. Use the timestamps to find the slides relevant to you. The presentation will give you useful information that guides you through the enrolment process, getting started, different visa categories and your visa conditions according to the type of visa you have entered the UK with.

It also explains the Student Visa service and what you can expect in terms of service provision at St Mary’s University.

It is very important that when you apply for a visa, you do not enter the UK unless you know that your visa has been granted.

Do not book travel to enter the UK unless you are sure your visa has been granted. You must follow all visa guidance correctly from your home Country when you apply.

We highly recommend that you understand all of the attendance and engagement requirements under the Student visa route and that you read all sources of information available. We do not want for you to be disadvantaged having not fully understood all visa implications.

We hope you enjoy your time at St Mary’s University and if you have any questions about your student visa conditions or anything related to immigration and visa compliance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
