Ever since Xiao was a little girl, she read stories of Great Britain and dreamt of living in the UK. This summer she will finally go to the country that she has read so much about, and will spend the next 3 years studying at a university in England.
Xiao describes herself as a ‘crazy Harry Potter fan’, so in between lectures she’ll be able to visit the famous Platform Nine and Three Quarters and even take the Harry Potter studio tour, which opened earlier this year.
Xiao isn’t just indulging childhood fantasies though; an education from the UK is an excellent asset in the global marketplace and can be the beginning of a promising career. Coming into the UK as a student is a great way to move to the country; many student visas also offer the opportunity to work part-time while studying to help with tuition fees and to integrate further into British life. Once she finishes her studies, Xiao will be in the position to look for permanent work, which could allow her to settle in the country on a more permanent basis.
While she’s in England, Xiao will enjoy the support of family friends who have already moved to the UK. In addition to Global Visas’ student counselling, they will be able to provide advice and help her settle into her new home.
Xiao says “I’m really excited to be going to study in the UK. I’m so impressed at how quickly I got a visa – it’s really awesome! Vaishali (my case worker) has been really patient and helpful, and I’m so happy that Global Visas could make this happen for me.”
