How to obtain a visa

The UK Government introduced the Points Based System (PBS) of immigration for students. You will need to prove that you have the required number of points in order to make an application for your visa. You need to have 40 points altogether; 30 of these are obtained by providing a visa letter from Leeds Metropolitan University; the remaining 10 points are obtained by proving that you have the correct finances to support your study and your living and accommodation costs.
