Dear members,

I have applied for a Tier4 Student visa on 25th of October 2012 and after 3 weeks I have been asked to attend for an Interview at the British High Commission, Colombo on 22nd November. The interview was held for about 30 minutes duration and went smoothly except one question. I was asked about my funds which was deposited in my Savings Account and it has been held in my account for about 60 days and I have withdrawn that money couple of days before my interview date. The officer asked me whether the money was still available in my account. Then I have replied that the money has been withdrawn and it is in my father's bank account at the moment. Then she said OK. My question is, will this be problem and will the embassy refuse my visa because of this reason?

Kindly help me, I am so nervous until I receive my passport fro them.

Thanks.

Possibly, yes. The money should always be kept in until the decision.

Thanks victoria for your reply. Can you kindly quote the Immigration Rules on UKBA website where it says that the money should be kept until they make a decision on the Application? It will be of help for me. Thanks.

No I can't. I can tell you that the decision is usually made as per the circumstances on the date of decision, and you have told them that you no longer have the money.

Yes, As victoria said, the visa was turned down. Now I am hoping to make a re-application and obtained a CAS from Heriot-Watt University and I'll be following this course at West London College. So what will be my Primary Site of Study?

Dear Members,

 

Unfortunately my Tier4 Visa has been turned down by the ECO. The ECO states in the refusal notice that I had failed to answer how will I be assessed at the course during the interview. But I didn't hear and understand the question because of the poor quality of the video satellite.. Except that question I have answered to all the questions. Now I am hoping to go for an Admin Review. Can anybody kindly tell me "How can I describe this on Admin Review to the British Embassy? It will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks to all/.

I assume that during the interview you said something like "Sorry I can't hear you, this is a bad line", and ask them to repeat the question?  If you did not, nor mention anything to anyone at the time about the problem, I am not sure there is any point in doing so now.

 

You may wish to simply apply again, but do discuss this with your Tier 4 sponsor.
