Student visa applications for UK students taking courses abroad have been getting stuck in processing since last year, but it’s not all bad news. The British High Commission is advising those interested to apply early – as early as possible actually! If you’re thinking about applying this academic year or next summer semester (so basically right now), get your paperwork submitted ASAP because there was recently an increase in cases being delayed by up 2 weeks just within these two months alone which means more waiting time before receiving any response from sponsorships agencies
British High Commission advises students to apply for their visas much earlier than they think necessary as delays continue across major study abroad destinations.
The United Kingdom is one of the most sought-after countries for international students, with more than 30 million people applying annually. In 2018 alone there were 58887 visa applications from Nigeria which ranks third among all other countries granted UK student visas during that time period behind China and India but still has a high count as compared to many others worldwide!
