1. Do plenty of research…!!
If you are planning to study in UK, bachelors or masters, you should start your research and plans at least 6 months prior. Visa requirements and processing time vary depending on intake and the academic year, what level of course and how long it is..!!

2. Do not PROCRASTINATE..!! or Don’t leave until the last minute

3. Prepare for your Visa interview
Think about the reasons why you want to study abroad, why you’ve picked your course and institution and what career you hope to begin after your studies.
These are the kind of questions you’ll commonly be asked at a visa interview, so make sure you’re prepared by finding out as much about your programme and destination as you can.
It’s important to make a good first impression and show that you’re serious and passionate about your studies.
