Pursuing a semester abroad requires you to obtain a student visa. However, before applying to a particular program, you need to ensure that the course that you’re applying to meets the visa requirements of that country. Visa processing can take days to even a couple of months depending on the country you will be studying in, so it is important that you keep yourself updated with the average time that it could take.
Mentioned below are some of the most common queries that students have when applying for their visas.
How Do I Apply For A Student Visa?
The application process and requirements for a student visa varies, depending on the country you wish to apply to. There are certain documents that need to be submitted when you apply for your visa. However, before you begin with the process, you need to be accepted into a program first.
How Much Money Do I Need?
When applying for your student visa, it is important that you have sufficient funds to cover your study abroad expenses. When considering your options, ensure that you know what your program costs cover. Tuition and living costs will vary depending on the country and region you choose to live in. You will be required to provide records of your bank statement along with other details to show that you are able to pay for your overseas education.
Can I Work On My Student Visa?
Many students work on or off campus during their time overseas, however, they are only permitted to work once their course begins. As a student, you can work part time up to 20 hours per week and full time up to 40 hours per week during your summer break depending on the country you decide to study in.
How Long Can I Stay For?
When you enter on a student visa, you can stay as long as you are a full time student, which means that you can stay on till you have successfully completed your course.
Can I Travel After My Program If My Visa Has Expired?
Every country deals with this situation differently and some countries are strict about travel if your visa has expired. It is recommended that you consider your options carefully before you decide to travel with an expired visa.
