Interview Questions for a UK Study Visa


hello everyone! welcome to my channel, I am Dori I am a teacher

of English and today's video is another request video

but I think that it will be very very interesting

for all of you know who want to study in the UK or the US

and want a study visa for it

so I read the question: "Could you please upload

a video of how to behave with the visa officer

and tricks and tips please

okay so first of all what I want to tell you is that the visa officer

that is going to interview you is a very experienced officer

who really knows his job, so tricks won't really

work here. What I can do is to give you some general advice of

what he expects to hear in order to give you that visa

I believe that the majority of study visas

are usually granted. So, this video is about

study visas and not work visas

okay now as far as the UK is concerned,

things are pretty easy as long as you can communicate in English

quite well and you are able

to provide reasons why

you want to study in the UK and of course if you have

all the required documents with you then you will probably

get that visa. However, keep in mind

that you must have already been offered

a place on a course in an english university

this is a requirement. Overall,

you must be calm, organised and very clear

and specific in your answers. These things help

of course you should look decently dressed, ok

So, during the interview if you don't

understand something or if you don't hear something very well

always always you can ask the officer to repeat the

question or to talk a little bit more slowly so you can always ask

something like that

You can do these things and they are not going to count against you.

First things first, they will ask you your name and your date of birth

the question could be something like that

and in this case you will answer

they will definitely ask you

Where will you be studying?

So, in this case you have to be clear and provide as many

details as possible. So, if you can be specific

for example you can answer something like that

always always mention the university of

your choice. The more information you know

about it the better. So, be prepared

before the interview because they will ask you some things about that. For example, they may ask you

in which case you have to know the exact start day

of your program. So, you will answer,

for example. Obviously, then, they are going to ask you some details about the course

of your choice and the reasons of why you chose it

So, again, it depends a little bit on your own personal choice and your own personal reasons

so you have to be able to be really

clear and specific of why you choose something like that and you have to know

some things to talk about but as an example

answer you could say

for example. I strongly strongly advise you not to memorize

answers. experienced examiners can really

understand that and this is going to count against you but,

of course always feel free to practice these answers

lots of times until you're able to talk about this matter

without memorizing answers and without

any extra help okay they will most certainly ask you

So, you have to be able to talk about it

a little bit about the university of your choice. Answers like

"well, this was the only university that actually

accepted me" These answers are not going to work

very well for you, so you have to be

prepared for something else. For example, an answer could be

Of course if you want to add even more advantages about the university of your choice

you can feel free to add even more

but this again is something that

is based on your personal choice and preference

They may also ask you

Again, you may have your own personal reasons for choosing the UK

but an example answer could be

Of course they may not ask you all the questions that I give you here

they may just ask you some of them

but it is very wise to be prepared for all of them because you never know

what they are going to ask you. another important factor

for them is the issue of your residence

So, they may ask you

So, in this case you have to know what you

are going to do

in terms of residence, for example, you could answer

Be sure that any answer you are giving is the truth

because they're going to ask you details

about it most probably and you have to be able to answer them

Another question could be

again this is a little bit personal

it is about what you intend to do but an example

answer could be

in this case of course you answer the truth

they might ask you some information about the town that you are going to live in

so be prepared for that too

by saying some things about this

specific town for example you could say

you can also say that people are very friendly here

or that you already have friends and relatives and you know more or less

the city that you are going to live in. As you can see, they may ask you different

questions but they will be more or less around the same topics

about your studies, about the university of your choice

about where you are going to be staying and about

the city that you are going to live in, more or less about the same topics

so be sure to be prepared

for these kind of questions

They may also ask you about your IELTS score

in which case you will answer your overall band score and if they ask you for a

specific section that you may have a weakness

be ready to answer how

you intend to deal with it for example

if you are a little bit weak for example

in writing, you can answer something like

so be ready to provide solutions if you already know

that you lack some skills

concerning your IELTS scores okay

Overall, remember to be clear and to provide

concise and specific answers

be confident and show that you know what you are talking about

good level of English in terms of reading speaking and writing

and of course listening and communicating very well

well, is kind of important

but in case you're already accepted by a university there

then you probably have nothing to fear about

Now, this is all about the UK if you're

interested in studying in the US well that's a different story

and we will talk about this in a following video

in the part 2 of this video because

regarding the US, things are a little bit different
