Today, we will talk about the UK, the recent travel updates here, and also we will highlight the impacts of the third wave of COVID-19 in the UK.
An important announcement was made by UK president Boris Johnson that post January 27th, anyone can travel anywhere in the UK without wearing a mask and there is no need to attend any classes online, students can take classes offline too. Moreover, the work-from-home system will soon be removed from the UK.
This, in a nutshell, means that now the UK government will handle COVID-19 just like a normal flu and hence there won’t be any such restrictions that will apply because of this in the UK. Usually, to travel in night clubs or any other places in the UK, people had to show COVID or vaccine passes to enter those places, however, after January 27th, those passes will become null and void and people won’t be restricted as far as traveling there.
So, to summarize, after 27th January, all restrictions related to COVID will be lifted from the UK. Besides, the admissions for May intake for 2022 have already started in the UK, the admissions for September intake 2022 is going to be almost full in the top 20 universities in the UK.
As a result, those who are planning to take admission in the top 20 universities in the UK in the 2022 intake, this is the best time for you. There are approximately one to one-and-a-half months of time left to apply, so do not miss out.
Remember that to apply, you’ll need to prepare an SOP or the statement of purpose and all other necessary documents for completing your application successfully.
There are a few online counselors who can assist you in filling up your application in the accurate way as prescribed in the universities you want to apply to. They will also assist you in the documentation part also. Hence, if you have a problem in completing the procedure yourself, get in touch with them to get things done smoothly.
Once you have been given a place on a course, ask your course provider if they will assist you in obtaining a student visa for the United Kingdom. It's possible to apply for the visa up to three months before the start of your course date. Thoroughly check your country's average processing periods for visas and leave plenty of time.
Upon arrival, a UK Border Agency official will stamp your passport with the length of your stay in the UK, which will be clearly marked. This means that you can stay for as long as the course lasts plus an additional four months if it's 12 months or longer in length or more. It's not possible to prolong your stay beyond this time.
Check your immunization status before you come to the UK, and bring your vaccination record with you in case the Border Agency officer at your UK port of entry requests it. You should also have your academic records (such as your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies, or CAS) with you, as well as proof of your financial situation and documentation of your living arrangements.
That’s all we have for now. Thank you!
