Uk Student Room

Jamie Said:

The Student Visa - being applied for in the UK?

We Answered:

Too long questions.

1) You need offer letter from the University, offering you a full time course with 15 hours per week or more for a duration of longer than six months. If you don't have it you cannot apply for Student visa. There is no such thing "prospective student visa" (its actually a visit visa allowing one to study for less than six months, non-extendible. You must apply for full student visa & in Canada not in UK. Now please read further).

2) Lease agreement is handy if its privately rented place. Alternatively a letter from University, confirming that you can live on-campus.

3) If u intend to work, u can only do it in 2010. The allowed time is 20 hours in week of 7 days & full time during holidays from school/Uni. You will apply for National Insurance number, once u have the job offer. (Keep in mind that from 1st Jan 2011, UK Government is bringing in new rules of banning all kind of work for non-EU students).

4) Please bring three last bank statements from Canada with you, and opening Student bank account wont be a problem, as far as u can show the Bank Manager, a letter from University with ur enrollment in a course. You cannot apply online for bank account in UK, proof required that ur stay in UK will be as student (copy of page of visa & copy of page with Entry in UK stamp required).

As far as I know for student visa you must apply in person & you will be interviewed by visa officer in UK High Commission. Please use the website (UKVISAS, printed below) to book an interview appointment.

Good luck

Melinda Said:

Is it illegal to smoke in a rented room of a private owned apartment block? (UK)?

We Answered:

Smoking in an apartment is not illegal. You cannot be arested for it. It is simply against that landlord's rules. Landlords have every leglal right to not allow smoking in their apartments.

Sean Said:

moving out of rented house before contract is up (UK student)?

We Answered:

Yes, their current landlord can come after them for the money owed. A contract is a legally binding agreement so he still has to pay for the whole year regardless if he stays there or not.

What he can try to do is talk to his landlord to see if he would agree to let him out of the lease/contract (with 30-60 days notice). If the landlord has a waiting list to get into that unit, or if he thinks he could find someone else to rent it within a month he may choose to let your friend out of the agreement - but that is completely at his discretion.
