|After you secure admission from your foreign university,comes the most important part of your study abroad process-getting your student visa , without which this whole charade would only be meaningless.Its the most imoprtant step so ensure that you have the following documents in order before you apply for the visa.WHAT YOU NEED1.Letter of acceptance from university or college where you plan on studying.They send you this letter right in the beginning stating you can take admission into their insitiute.
2.Copy of application form that you sent to the university where you will get admitted
3.IELTS test scores showing that you cleared the test.
5.Visa charges paid to the agency or to consulate accordingly

|THINGS TO REMEMBERa.All counsulates/embassies do not have a mandatory interviewb.You will most likely be given 30 -60 days of time after the end of your course, after which your student visa will expire
c.Visa for work permits will be issued seperatley, can be applied for at a later stage.Some educational consultants offer the university course followed by a supplementary work permit together.
d.On campus jobs can be applied for without the consent of a work permit, provided it is only for a maximum of 20 hours a week.This is during the duration of the college course.
e. I haven’t segregated visa process for the different countries because most of the prerequisites are the same-they want to verify your credentials and see if you can afford it comfortably.
