UK ban on student visas to go soon

February 24, 2010

The ban imposed by the UK on student visa application will be lifted “as soon as possible””, a British council director said Tuesday, after announcing the schedule of annual UK exhibition in Bangladesh.
“This suspension will come to an end as soon as possible. The door would be wide open and we hope a large number of students will come in UK to pursue higher education, British council Bangladesh director, Charles Nuttal OBE said.
He also expressed hopes that genuine students will get chance for admission.
UK has temporarily suspended accepting visa applications from February 1 in view of the surge in applications during a short period of time.
Students aspiring to pursue higher education in the UK will get a chance to meet representatives from nearly 37 UK-based institutes in the capital and the port city.
In Dhaka the exhibition will take place on 4 and 5 March, from 11 am to 8 pm at Winter Garden of Hotel Sheraton while it will be held in Chittagong on March 7. The entry fee to the exhibition is tk. 50.
British Council is organizing the Education UK exhibition 2010 and this is the 12th of its kind in Bangladesh.
The exhibition will give local students the chance to gain more information on undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, scholarship opportunities and which institute could be right for them.
There will also be a UK Border Agency stall at the Exhibition and staff will provide answers to UK visa related queries.
