Hello Akolawole,Londoncool,Mr pataki,VOR and everyone in the house,
I just got refused a uk student visa with the following reasons as stated by the ECO,
The cost of your tuition,maintenance and accomodation is to be borne by your sponsor and you have submitted evidence of how your studies in the UK will be financed including photocopies of bank statements and a letter from your sponsor offering finanacial assistance.However the bank statement you have provided in support of your application is not in your sponsor's name and you have not produced satisfactory evidence that he/she has access to these funds to pay for your course and adequately mainatain and accomodate you whilst in the UK.In any event,in a society where forgery is endemic,photocopies of documents are of little practical value in reliably establishing bona fides of an applicant or their sponsor's circumstances.Therefore I am not satisfied this represents a genuine and meaningful offer of sponsorship and that these funds would be available to meet the costs of your studies,maintenance and accomodation in the united kingdom.
The educational establishment in the UK has stated that the cost of your tuition fees for one year is £3,900.British council guidelines suggest students require between £5,500 and £7,500 coveriung a nine month academic year for maintenance and living expenses in the UK and this assessment is based upon 2004 prices.This brings the total cost of your studies in the uk for one academic year to £11,400.Your sponsor's financial documents do not satisfactorily confirm that you have sufficient funds to cover the cost of your studies in the UK and adequately maintain and accomodate yourself whilst there.If I am to accept the photocopies of the company bank statement as evidence of funds,I note that as of 29 september balance was N538653(£2244).Furthermore,I do not find it credible that your sponsor is willing to spend so much to finance your studies in the UK.You have not satisfactorily demostrated that such expenditure is comensurate to any benefits to be gained by your sponsor in doing so.Nor have you provided documentary evidence to show how you are related to your sponsor.
The documents that you have submitted with your application suggest that you will be accomodated by your cousin in the Uk,however you have not submitted any evidence that there is adequate accomodation available to you.Nor have you submitted evidence of your relative's immigration status in the UK or evidence that you are related as claimed.
Your account of your personal,economic and social circumstances and how you will ultimately make use of these studies and any qualification you might gain does not satisfy me,on a balance of probabilities,that you intend to leave the United Kingdom on completion of your proposed course.
Please I need your evaluation on this refusal letter asap so I will know what to do before I reapply and your contributions to its reapplication, or what next do i do?
