Supporting Documents

When attending a UK university open day as an international student, you must bring along several supporting documents to ensure you have all the necessary information and materials. We recommend that you bring:

  • Academic Transcripts: Please provide copies of your high school transcripts and any previous academic qualifications, such as diplomas or certificates.
  • English Language Proficiency Certificate: If English is not your first language and you've taken an English proficiency test (such as IELTS or TOEFL), bring a copy of your test results.
  • Passport: Your valid passport or any other form of identification.
  • Visa Documents: If you already have a student visa or have applied for one, bring copies of relevant visa documents or confirmation of visa application.
  • Resume/CV: Please include a copy of your resume or curriculum vitae (CV) detailing your educational background, work experience, extracurricular activities, and any other relevant achievements.
  • Portfolio (if applicable): If you're applying for a creative or practical course that requires a portfolio (e.g., art, design, architecture), bring samples of your work or a portfolio showcasing your skills and creativity.
  • Reference Letters: Copies of reference letters from teachers, professors, or employers that support your application.

By bringing these documents, you'll be well-prepared to engage with university staff, gather relevant information, and make the most of your UK university open day experience as an international student.

Student Visa Procedures

If you wish to study at a UK university, college and language school then you will need to apply for a visa. Applying for a visa is normally the last hurdle in the admissions process; however it is essential that students start preparing for it immediately, saving stress later in time.

What do I need for my visa application?

Before preparing your application, you will need a number of different documents (all original copies) to prove who you say you are. These include:

  • Your current passport and any previous passports that you have, that contain a UK visa
  • Two passport photos which meet the requirements of the Home Office
  • Financial documents which prove you have the required funds available to you
  • If you are being officially financially sponsored you will need a letter from your sponsor confirming the sponsorship arrangements
  • Evidence of previous qualifications

If you are deemed to be in a low-risk country by the Home Office, you might not even need to send in all of the above to obtain your visa. Be sure to have them ready though, just in case. All visa application forms are now available on the Home Office online portal.

Two-year post-study work visa

The two-year post-study work visa allows Indian students who successfully complete an undergraduate degree in the UK to stay in the country for a further two years after graduation.

The scheme aims to provide greater opportunities to international students who wish to remain in the UK after the successful completion of their degree and, after issuing over 250,000 study visas to international students wishing to study in the UK last year - 13% higher than the preceding 12 months - the UK remains a premier global study destination.
