Help with study visas for the UK or US

Campus GB offers visa help and pre-application support, wherever you’re looking to study.

US Pre-Arrival Support Service (PASS) advisors can answer any questions you may have on the US visa process. They offer financial guidance for F-1 student visa, bank statements, financial guarantee letters etc, and can ensure that you have all the documents needed to successfully apply for your F-1 student visa.

In the UK we have a 98% success rate for students applying for UK study visas. We offer a range of visa help including:

  • checking proof of funds documents to ensure that bank statements meet application requirements
  • mock interviews to help you practice answering UKVI questions
  • a dedicated email address for any questions on English language tests: SELT.

You can read more general information about visas and pre-arrival support in our frequently asked questions area.

Applied for a course and need help with your visa?

UK study visas

The majority of non-EEA nationals will require a Tier 4 (General) student visa in order to study in the UK. The EEA includes the European Union countries, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

To study in the UK, you’ll also need a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) statement. Campus GB will produce and send this to you once you hold an unconditional offer, and have sent us your signed acceptance forms and deposit.

Visas can take up to 30 days to come through, so it is recommended you apply as soon as you have received your offer.

US study visas

Once your application is accepted, your chosen university will create and mail you a physical I-20 form. You’ll  need to pay a $200 fee to activate your I-20 in the SEVIS database, and then your SEVIS ID number can be used to complete the I-901 form.

Once you have done this, you can make an appointment with your local US Embassy/Consulate for a visa interview. You’ll need to take your documents to this interview, and should wait until you receive your visa before making travel arrangements.

Meet Hami, one of our visa experts

Have you ever lived or studied abroad?

I lived in Sweden for 8 years, after which I moved abroad and  lived and studied here ever since. I’m originally Iranian, so I come from a multicultural background, and am always delighted to speak to students from all around the world.

What are the most common questions you get asked?

Different questions are asked at the different process stages, such as “what are the entry requirements?”, “what accommodation options are available?” and “what documents are required to apply for my visa?”.
