Questions at your interview
The questions in your interview will help your caseworker decide if you are a 'genuine' student and if you are planning to come to the UK in order to study the course you have been offered.
The interviewer will ask you questions to check that:
- You have carefully thought about your study and why you want to come here
- Your English is good enough for you to study in the UK so you will be expected to answer the questions without an interpreter.
Always tell the truth! You should never lie at any point during your visa application.
If you don't understand a question, you can ask the interviewer to repeat it. They understand that English might not be your first language and won't mind repeating the question. Most importantly, try to remain calm and answer the questions clearly and slowly. Don't panic, as this makes it harder for you to speak clearly.
We have created a flyer and an infographic preparation guide to help you think about the kinds of questions you may be asked and the best ways to prepare.
