From what I understand it's no guarantee that they'll call you if your application is deemed "not straightforward". Sometimes they call people for clarification, sometimes they don't, it seems to be at the discretion of the ECO.

returning UK Student

Hey waqas, did u get the visa?

I am also a returning UK Student. Did my bachelors from there now have applied for tier 4 again to pursue my masters.

Just wanted to know if having a tier 4 previously affects the visa outcome. clean immigration history. no overstays etc.

Regards,
Farhan

Tier 4 Karachi

Bro I am still waiting. No reply yet.Whats your timeline and from which country.
Bro I applied from Karachi.

Applied for Tier 4 at Karachi VAC on 19th July and got the reply on 27th July from Sheffield office confirming that my "..application is currently being prepared for consideration by an Entry Clearance Officer"

Not sure if they calculate the 15 day processing time (stated on the website) from the date of the application or from the date we get the confirmation from the Sheffield office.

Still Waiting. Do let us know the outcome of your visa application. I wish you the best.

No Waqas. Still waiting.

I haven't even received the "unfortunately" email.

Its been 12 working days since the application date.

any update on your end? did they call you for the second interview. If yes what did they ask if you dont mind me asking?
Bro working days start from when you give biometrics. Unfortunately email comes after 5-6 days of acknowledgement. I hope it does not come to you or else it would delay and most probably be interviewed twice.I'll tell you over call what they ask on second interview as can't post all in details but as soon as you get unfortunately they call within 48 hrs so just post here or text me 07814427056.

I have a question regarding student visas, I'm not sure if there is another forum for this.
A colleague of mine's son is applying for a student visa to complete a masters degree. he has not been able to secure accommodation yet but doesn't want to delay the application. His idea is to use the school's address until he is able to find a place.
They meet maintenance requirements so that would not be an issue.
Would this be a problem compared to having a lease already secured?

Any advice would be appreciated.

It won't be a problem. If in credibility interview they ask where you gonna stay tell them you are in contact with the university for accomodation but only tell if they ask.Rest no issue.You can go Ahead.
Thanks

You are in the same boat as just about anyone else. They are taking a lot longer because of huge increase in all types of applications. So we don't know how long you have to wait.
