NVQ Student from the Philippines arrived today at Majestic College after landing in London yesterday afternoon at 3pm.
She received her visa in Manila, but only after her immigration advisers, appeal specialists Bison UK, lodged a successful appeal at the AIT against her entry clearance refusal in 2008.
The Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) at the British Embassy in Manila refused her student visa, when she applied to come to the UK to study and that the NVQ in Health and Social Care at Majestic College, after visiting the UK as a tourist in 2006 and 2007.
Bison UK refuted the claim in the grounds of the appeal, which was heard before an Immigration Judge at the AIT in Hatton Cross last month.

She has proved that she fully intends to follow the NVQ course and study by attending Majestic College the day after arriving in London and she has already lined up a paid work placement!
Visa appeals have been abolished for student visa refusals in line with new ‘points based’ rules. Students refused entry clearance under Tier 4 of the points based system, which took effect on 31 March 2009, will now have their cases reviewed by an ECM under the new ‘Administrative Review’ system.
