When should I apply for a Student Visa?
Students are always advised to plan their admission/ application process keeping in mind university deadlines and working backward.
Students are required to appear for English eligibility tests as per the university policy and also have required documents in place for the smooth processing of their application.
Hence, students are always advised to apply 3-4 months in advance to avoid any last-minute rush. Candidates seeking financial aid, scholarships, and education loans should add another couple of extra months to the process as these applications take more time.
