I got an email yesterday saying that my passport is ready for pickup. I will pick it up Monday, since VSF is closed today. Fingers crossed that it has the right stamp.

My overall timeline was as follows (Priority Application):

Online application submission: 01 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July
Uni notified CAS has been used: 16 July
Called UKVI and was told that a decision has been made: 19 July (morning)
E-mail from VFS saying passport is ready for collection: 19 July (evening)

No email or communication from UKVI or VFS about ECO being assigned or decision being made.

Good luck everyone!
Good luck, we're waiting for the good news :)

Hi All,

I am planning to take up biometric on Aug 6th. While i choose the appointment date, I can see only "Prime time appointment". This is the case from Aug 3rd till Aug 16th. Any new dates getting opened have Prime time appointment only.

Will the normal time appointment be opened later or not?

Thanks

I am in a similar situation. I applied at the TLSContact center in Tel Aviv, and was expecting an interview. However, they just collected my documents and biometrics without any mention of an interview whatsoever. I applied priority, and they told me that I would hopefully have a decision within 5-10 working days.

Timeline (Priority Application):
Online application submission: 06 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
TLSContact Says the documents have been transferred to UKVI: 11 July
TLSContact tracking shows the application was received by UKVI: 12 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July

I suppose it is possible that they have chosen not to interview us? Or will we likely get invited in on a different date to sit for an interview?
Hi! Did you get your visa yet?

I am exactly in the same situation.
Priority application from Lima.

Timeline (Priority Application):
Online application submission: 01 July
Document Submission & Biometrics (no interview): 10 July
Email from Sheffield saying that my application has been received and is being prepared for consideration: 12 July
Uni notification that my CAS is now marked as USED by Home Office: 16 July

No further news since then.

Let me know about any updates pls!!
I'm in the same situation at the moment. My uni told me that they used my CAS on July 16. On July 17, I called UKVI and they told me that a decision had been made, and that I now need to wait for my documents to be returned. I have received no email from UKVI confirming that a decision has been made, however, and the processing center's tracking does not show the decision as having been made yet, either.

Hi everyone. I received my passport with the entry clearance sticker today. Just wanted to share my timeline and experience.

Online application: 17th June
Biometrics & Interview: 28th June
Automated email: 1st July (mentioned that my application is currently being prepared for consideration by ECO)
Call from VFS to collect passport: 17th July
Received the passport: 23rd July

The letter enclosed with the passport mentions a visa grant date of 10th July.

My application was eligible for the Tier 4 Pilot Scheme. But my checklist indicated that I had to submit my certificates. Prior to my appointment at VFS, I contacted the university and they contacted UKVI on behalf of me and told me that this was an error on the UKVI side and I should not submit my certificates. So I submitted only my passport at VFS. My interview was rather long. I was asked more than the standard questions. In case anyone wants to know, these were things I was asked in addition to the usual why did you choose this course/UK and so on.

- Where do you plan to stay in UK? (xxxx)
- How will you get from your accommodation to the university? (I completely forgot the station names but I gave instructions on how to get from the accommodation to the university)
- Do you have any friends or family living in UK? (No)
- How much is the accommodation? (GBP xxxx)
- Have you paid for the accommodation? (I said no because its due sometime in August, but I have placed a deposit to secure the room)
- Does your bank account have the funds required to pay for the accommodation? (yes)
- What is the source of the funds in the bank account? (I replied to this saying that my parents run their own business and they also earn rental income. This prompted the next question)
- How much is the income per month? (I gave a rough figure of the rental income and said that I really don't know the business income)
- How many people are dependent on the income? Any siblings?
- What are your plans after this course? (I mentioned that I will proceed to do a PhD)
- What is the area in which you want to do your PhD?
- What type of salary do you expect you can earn after completing your studies? (This was one of the questions I couldn't really answer because I wasn't prepared for this. So I asked whether the interviewer meant after my Masters or my PhD because I mentioned that I plan to immediately begin my PhD after completing my Masters. The interviewer said that a rough estimate is fine since there's still quite a long gap. I panicked and said GBP 3000 per month. Which obviously is way too high but the interviewer kept on saying any amount is fine, just a rough estimate will do)
- What was the last course that you completed?
- What have you been doing since you completed the course? (I completed my last course in Dec 2017 and spent quite some time with the university application and waiting for the offer from the university. Other than that I mentioned that I have been reading up on relevant material for the course)

What I have learnt from the entire application process is:
1. Contact the International Student Services of your university if you have any doubts. They will be more helpful as they have experience in dealing with this and can offer better advice.
2. This forum is useful to see the timelines, patterns and also get reassurance from others in a somewhat similar situation as you.

I hope everyone waiting for their visas get a positive response soon!

Hi wiki,
What did they ask you in interview ki have mine on Monday bio metrics on Monday and pls also mention which course did u apply and what type of questions they asked u.
Hi, Nikoletta
The interview was pretty simple, just relax and make sure you have thought about the answers beforehand.
I was asked the following questions:
1. Can you confirm your identity by saying your name, date, and place of birth?
2. Why did you apply for this course?
3. Why did you choose that University and that city?
4. Why did you choose the UK?
5. What will you do after you graduate from this course?
6. How would this degree help you to achieve what you'll do after this course?


Pls can you give me a gist about how your answered question( 3). Why chose the university? Did u compare?

Compare it to other institutions you have considered during your search for universities. Your reasons for choosing your university should be something that is unique and not shared by other universities. Some very specific and not general so that the UKVI knows you did a thorough research and that you are a genuine student with good academic intentions.

You can mention things like the ranking, the facilities at the uni (infrastructure, library, laboratories, etc), the services (post-study job guidance, etc), the professors, the way lectures are given, etc

You must have had very good reasons as to why you chose that uni. You can re-read your motivation letter to remind you of those reasons

All the best

My Application Timeline (Priority Service)
Filled online application - 25th July 2018
Biometrics submission and Interview(VFS Global - Colombo Sri Lanka) - 26th July 2018
Visa application forwarded by VFS - 26th July 2018
Visa application recieved (Sheffield Email) - 27th July
Anyone have a rough idea about the number of days this might take ?
Ive previously studied in the UK last year in the University of Surrey for my engineering foundation program and now leaving for my bachelors this year. In the interview, when the visa officer asked whether u considered any other universities ? I said no because ive already done my foundation at surrey and now I am going for my bachelors and the surrey ranking is good - will this be an issue ? :(

and do they reject student visas without calling for a second interview or a document resubmission ?

Hi All,

My timeline:

7 July 2018: Date of online application
10 July 2018: Date of interview, bio-metrics and document submission
27 july 2018: Received email from british high commission in Delhi that a decision was made
28 July 2018: received my documents with UK entry clearance sticker on passport at home

My take:
I would say that everyone should wait for 15 working days before inquiring UKVI. Inquire them on call or email only if you have not heard back from them after 15 working days.

Also, I had not received any communication from VFS or embassy after submitting my documents at VFS. Only email that I received was on 13th working day, stating that a decision was made.

Moreover, there were some complications with my application. My middle name on passport and degree certificate was a bit different. I had produced a notary undertaking stating that both the names are of same person and that resolved the issue.

I would say that everyone should wait for 15 working days before inquiring UKVI. Inquire them on call or email only if you have not heard back from them after 15 working days.

Also, I had not received any communication from VFS or embassy after submitting my documents at VFS. Only email that I received was on 13th working day, stating that a decision was made.

Moreover, there were some complications with my application. My middle name on passport and degree certificate was a bit different. I had produced a notary undertaking stating that both the names are of same person and that resolved the issue.
Did u apply on priority service ?
applied on standard service. Non priority.
