I am an American citizen who applied for and was rejected a prospective student visa to study in the UK in February this year. I was told by plymouth university that I didn't need to show any financial details when I apply, because I'd only need that for a tier 4, not prospective. I was rejected for not including them, if I had known I would've waited to apply with them. Now it's September and I want to use the money I saved up for tickets to visit the UK, just for a vacation, over this winter season. Will my previous visa rejection affect or stop me from visiting the UK as a tourist? I just want to spend Christmas with my partner. Thanks for any responses!
