Hi, asking on behalf of a friend, who is from China.
Anyone knows if it is difficult for a Chinese to apply for student visa to UK? He took the IELTS and scored 6.5 against 9 on the average. What's your viewpoint on this? Appreciate any inputs!

Hi nekoi -

A few questions - is your friend a Chinese citizen currently living in China? Has he / she been offered a place at University in the UK? How long does he / she intend to stay in the UK?

Let me know, and I can dig up some info for you to pass on.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Nekoi -

He will need a visa. Here's the form, which he should fill out and pass to the British Embassy http://www.fco.gov.uk/Files/kfile/vaf1_feb_2006,0.pdf

Also, get him to check out http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=OpenMarket/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid=1006977149962

There's a lot of info there.

All the best!
