【Oh!爸媽】申請英國學生簽證懶人包

同學仔決定去英國升學,揀了學校,得到取錄,萬事俱備,獨欠簽證的東風。辦簽證,可以要求升學中心代勞,但卻不是間間都有此服務。無論是親力親為還是委託他人,家長和同學仔能了解多些英國學生簽證的申請程序,對整件事也會事半功倍。

 

去年有英國簽證危機,連特首林鄭也要為香港同學挺身而出,相信大家記憶猶新。其實近年申請英國學生簽證的程序,要求愈來愈嚴格,過程亦愈趨繁複,這是整個升學界面對的難題。升學中心固然兩脇插刀出盡全力,有些學校今年甚至高價聘請移民公司的專業簽證專家助陣,目的都是希望在難局中可協助同學順利得到東風,輕鬆踏上留英之路。在此我想代表整個業界申明這困難,希望能得到家長和同學的體諒。

 

言歸正傳。透過升學中心代辦升學簽證,中心會主要循兩方面進行手續,一是遞交簽證申請所需要的文件,二是向校方取得簽證必須的簽證信CAS。

 

申請升學簽證所需要遞交的文件,一覧如下:

一般文件:包括學生本人的有效護照、舊護照(如有)、出世紙,家長的有效護照,同學仔要申報之前是否有到過英國、是否曾在英國讀書及箇中詳情。

肺結核測試報告: 同學仔申請簽證前要進行肺結核測試,且必要在指定醫務測試中心進行。

家長同意書: 家長雙方要簽署一封申明同意同學仔赴英國升學的信函。此信有標準樣本可跟循。

監護人資料: 英國法例規定,18歲以下留學生都要有一位居英的英國合法公民擔任其監護人,角色猶如同學仔留英時的再生父母,要承擔法律責任。不少學校會提供監護人表格,以填報監護人姓名、英國住址、電話及電郵等資料,也要呈交監護人的身份證副本。

銀行戶口文件: 香港屬低風險城市,持特區護照的學生並非強制性要提供資金證明。然而,隨着簽證要求收緊,不少學校都會建議家長向簽證部門出示銀行文件以證明有經濟能力供小朋友去英國留學一年的費用,以策萬全。目前的要求是約港幣40萬。留意番,一般學校在取錄後會收取一個學期的學費作訂金。假如家長已支付10萬元訂金,便要出示戶口有30萬的銀行文件。

 

再留意番,銀行文件可以是存摺或bank statement,但必須要顯示到户口28日內有該筆金額。假若家長銀行戶口賬目混亂,又或者習慣將資金存放在牀下底餅乾罐,無法出示戶口文件,無有怕! 只要家長一次過將全年學費繳清,便可免過這項審查。

 

申請英國學生簽證還有一份不可或缺的文件,是取錄學校所發出的 Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS)。對於家長和同學仔來講,簽證要求只有一個,但英國有三百幾間學校,就有三百幾種出CAS的條件。有些學校只要同學仔出示護照便ok,亦有學校要千呼萬喚才肯出信,所以向學校索取CAS,是升學中心代辦簽證的重要任務。

 

家長或者會疑惑: 學校收得阿仔/女,出封CAS話咁易啫?

 

但不幸事實並非如此,從學校的角度,隨著近年有關當局批發第四級簽證(Tier 4 Visa)要求愈來愈嚴,學校出了CAS後如果簽證申請最終被拒,三四次之後學校就有被短期中止執照之慮。今年便有一間英國學校中招,九月無法開學,令校方蒙受重大損失。有見及此,不少學校對批發CAS非常審慎,也大大提高批發的要求。

 

之前已講過,批發CAS的要求因校而異,但一般出信前會要求家長付第一個學期學費,亦有學校甚至會要求第二三學期的學費。另外,簽證中心要求知道同學仔是透過甚麼考核(如UKiset或入學試)獲取錄,同學仔要有相關文件作證,不過現今學校一般都會在CAS內列明,免去學生的麻煩。

 

特別提提十八歲以上或升讀預科學院的同學仔,如果你已年屆十八或即將入讀的是Oxford International College、 Cardiff Sixth Form College這一類中六或預科學院,申請簽證時你就有可能需要出示IELTS作為英語能力證明。原因是這些同學申請的會是Tier 4 General Visa,有異於寄宿學校同學的 Tier 4 Child Visa。更多有關學生申請簽證問題,可私信至我的Facebook專頁www.facebook.com/ukchitchat,或whatsapp 61075507。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
