What’s New for International Students Regarding UK Visa Fees?

It’s possible that you’ve heard about the changes to immigration fees in the UK starting on October 4, 2023. What additional costs will you incur for a UK student visa, and are there any other adjustments you should be aware of? We’ve covered all you need to know.

What is the price of a UK student visa?

The fee to apply for a student visa from outside the United Kingdom is going to increase by £127 to £490. The current fee for in-country applications is the same as this.

The cost of a visa will not alter for short-term English language learners who want to stay for six to eleven months. A complete list of the most recent immigration and nationality costs is available on the official government website.

And visas for study abroad?

Applying for a Graduate Route visa, which permits Masters and PhD graduates to remain in the UK for up to two and three years, respectively, will now cost more.

Will there be any other adjustments soon?

The Immigration Health Surcharge, which all international students must pay in order to access National Health Service (NHS) medical care, is also anticipated to rise. For the majority of applicants, the current fee is £470. Later in the autumn, the revised sum will be disclosed.

We will notify you of any future developments pertaining to postgraduate studies! You can read our comprehensive guidelines to learn more about living and studying in the UK in the meantime. See our article on financial preparation for studying abroad if you’re worried about the recent hike in visa fees.

Submit nominations for yourself. Kindly suggest others!

Typically, one cannot submit a nomination for oneself in these categories, so if you want to be acknowledged for your contributions to enhancing the postgraduate community, you’d better start talking about it and giving people pointers!

Relying on several nominations to increase your chances of winning is not advisable. Do encourage the person putting in your nomination to submit one outstanding entry.

The PG Awards are not a popularity contest, and receiving more nominations does not increase your chances of winning. What matters most are the nomination’s caliber, the achievement’s specifics, the setting, and its observable effects. We review every submission, so if someone submits one outstanding nomination with thorough proof of how you’ve impacted the postgraduate community, you have a better chance of winning than if 50 weakly worded, ill-supported entries are submitted.

Don’t merely tell us how wonderful they are! Show us just how amazing this individual is!

As an example, make sure to include any honors they may have received, testimonials they may have received, or data demonstrating their influence on the postgraduate community. Please explain why this individual is so exceptional; as we don’t know them, we need concrete proof of their deservingness of the honor.

Stay on topic. Please be succinct, precise, and logical!

Remain concise, logical, and focused on the main subject of each statement. You must define the terms you use in the nomination and provide context for them. Make sure there is no space for interpretation!

Avoid stuffing every reference to someone’s research with a page’s worth of hyperlinks.Please choose which evidence to provide.

Ensure that each and every piece of evidence you provide relates to the nomination and supports your nominee’s victory. Additionally, you must explain the background information on the evidence and its inclusion. In what way does it highlight your unique genius? Make sure the supporting documentation for your nomination supports all you say in it. For instance, include a link to any podcasts that someone has produced in the evidence sheet! Most crucial, don’t go beyond one A4 page.

Avoid rushing in at the last minute! Please draft it in advance.

When you’re ready to hit “ENTER,” copy and paste your nomination from somewhere else since you won’t be able to save it in the form as you go. The nomination consists of three sections: the description, the impact, and the evidence. Therefore, before you begin, take your time and collect all the necessary data. Consider writing your nomination in Word so you may edit it properly in advance and ensure that each section’s word count is met.
