Are you done with your student application procedure? Now it’s time for the final step that is the Student Visa that will permit you to proceed with your further education in UK. Here are the steps you need to go through to finally obtain your required Student Visa.

1. Whether you QUALIFY or not?

Before applying for UK visa, check whether you are eligible for the same or not.

For study purpose, one needs to apply for ‘Student Visa’ that comes under the category of ‘Tier 4’. You must be able to meet following conditions –

  • ‘Maintenance or Funds’ that means you are financially strong enough to cover your fees and living cost.
  • A signed copy of your completed visa application form.
  • A current and valid travel document or passport (your passport must contain at least 1 page that is blank on both sides, so that we can insert your visa).
  • 1 passport sized color photograph with white background (45mm*35mm).
  • Evidence of your permission to be in the country where you are applying, if you are not a national of that country.
  • Any previous passports to show your previous travel history.
  • All Academic documents provided to obtain the offer letter.
  • 3. Apply online

    Next step is to apply online. You will need to complete and submit a visa application form online at Visa4UK.

    After completing your online application form, take a print out of the same and sign it. In case you don’t have access to printer at the time of applying, you can do that later by re login to your account. Your application will be saved.

Your appointment must be within 90 days of submission of your online visa application. After this, you will receive an E-mail containing your application number (GWF Reference). Note down the number for further reference to track your application status.

    Last but not the least, before you sign your application form, you must ensure that the information provided by you is accurate and your supporting documents are genuine and unaltered. If you do not have any required document, then you should explain the reason for the same. Be cautious of providing any false document.

    "I am really grateful to Shirish sir for helping me realize my dream of master's in the US from a good university. Owing to his dedication and the personal attention bestowed on all of my applications, I have got an admit from Columbia University. Also the content writers and counselors have all been extremely helpful, accommodating and great guides on this journey."


    "It was a great experience for me. Mnemonic and its teachers provided me with all the facilities that a student needs. It was really fun studying in Mnemonic. I would certainly recommend everyone to join Mnemonic for their study abroad needs."

    ($ 25,000 Scholarship)

    "The most appreciable thing was that I got to write all the essays myself & so it was my own thought process which was refined by Mnemonic's fine quality writers. I have heard that some consultants write the whole essay where the individual contribution or ownership of the process becomes very limited. I think the team is very polished, mature, experienced and very helpful at all times. I had a good experience all through."


    "All the hard work and effort that the Mnemonic team had put in finally met appreciation and justice. Everyone in Mnemonic is very professional. The features of Applix are very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything regarding my admissions since the day I contacted Mnemonic. Thanks for a wonderful experience."

    "I thank Mr. Shirish and the whole team of Mnemonic Education for their guidance and support. Your team has been very professionally dedicated during the entire process. I have got the admission at the most prestigious, HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL. My dream of a lifetime has come true. It has made everyone proud of my achievement. To add cherry on top, I have been awarded scholarship worth $11250. I am now in the elite Business class!"


    "As the second youngest Chess Grand Master, my time is mostly spent in travelling for tournaments. In such a scenario, completing my application and getting an admission into Stanford University looked like a distant dream. The team at Mnemonic Education was dedicated enough to constantly keep in touch with me and help me in enhancing the creativity of my essays and submitting my applications on time. I look forward to my journey ahead at Stanford and would like to thank Mnemonic Education's entire team for making the process easier and smoother for me."
