They have confirmed that the UK borders will be welcoming International Students for Sept 2020 intake as per schedule
Students who plan to arrive in the UK should schedule their journey to be in the UK early enough so that they can undergo the mandatory 14 day quarantine before the University induction program dates
Students who have already received the offer letters should plan for the VISA and funding at the earliest , Students should also confirm their accommodation at the earliest and should intimate the authorities before landing at UK
Students who have submitted applications for the Sept 2020 intake should immediately contact Universities or their Study abroad consultants to pursue their application Status
Those who require IELTS should opt for the earliest possible dates to avoid last minute rush .
Priority or Super Priority visa may not available this year
Those students who have received Visa and could not travel due to the Pandemic can re submit for the Visa again and no further cost subject to conditions and without changing the course and the institution
Good news for those students, who had enrolled at UK Universities for the Feb intake and could not attend classes due to the Covid 19 impact, they will still be eligible for the Post study work (PSW) option even though they have attended only online classes. This ,I am sure will be a big a relief for many Indian students who had preferred UK over other countries just avail the PSW scheme
