A glimpse into the UK visa process for prospective students from India

Over 70 years after International Students Day was first marked in London by the International Students Council, British universities are today launching a new film aimed at helping the most talented Indian students better understand the process of applying for a student visa.

According to the UK Council for International Student Affairs, the UK welcomes over 400,000 international students annually—Chinese students form the highest number of overseas students in the UK, followed by students from India.

The film is a unique collaboration between British universities, the British Council in Delhi and the Home Office to follow current students as they embark on their journey to study in the UK. Both students featured in the film – Arshi Aggarwal and Angesh Anupam – are now successfully studying in the UK.

“This is a great way of showing, to the many students around the world who want to study in the UK, how the process works and how it can become a reality,” said Nicola Dandridge, Chief Executive of Universities UK, of the film.“Prospective international students, and their parents, hear a lot of myths about the application process and the UK’s student visa system. Through these real-life examples, they get a first-hand account of how the process actually works.”
