You have applied for a short-term student visa to visit the United Kingdom from 15/09/20 to 30/07/21. You have submitted an enrolment letter from ***** and you state that the cost of your studies is to be borne by your mother and a British family friend, *****. You state that your mother is paying RUB 50,000 (approximately £513 at OANDA rate of exchange) and that Mr Saville is paying GBP 3,000 towards your studies.
I have refused your application for a short-term student visa because I am not satisfied that you meet the requirements of paragraph(s) A57C (b) (iv), (v), (vi) (vii) (ix) and A57E (b) because:
You submitted evidence that your mother’s average monthly income is RUB 37,000 (approximately £380 at OANDA rate of exchange). The balance in her Sberbank account is RUB 49,966 (£513 at OANDA rate of exchange) on 10/08/20. You submitted a letter from your mother, dated 18/08/20, stating she is paying for all the costs associated to your studies in the U.K. The evidence available to me does not satisfy me that your mother is able to meet these costs.
You have submitted a letter from *****, dated 29/07/2020, in which he states he will pay for all costs associated with your studies. As evidence of his ability to fund your studies you have submitted a Barclays mortgage statement dated 04/05/20 and a letter from *****, stating ***** is employed by said company. There is no evidence of ***** current financial commitments or of funds available to him to demonstrate that he is able to meet all the costs associated with your studies in the U.K. Furthermore, it is unclear what benefits ***** will accrue by sponsoring your studies in the U.K. This leads me to question your motivations for wishing to come to the U.K. now.
You state that you are currently employed selling phone accessories, earning RUB 20,000 (approximately £205 at OANDA rate of exchange on 11/09/20). You state that you live with your parents and one sibling. You submitted a certificate showing that you last studied in 2018 and there is no evidence of any subsequent studies since then. I am not satisfied that your circumstances in your home country are such that would prompt your departure from the U.K. at the end of any period of leave granted to you.
I am not satisfied that you are genuinely seeking entry as a short-term student. I am also not satisfied that you have access to the available funds for your intended trip. Your application has therefore been refused under paragraph A57C (b) (vi), (vii), (viii), (ix). Furthermore, I am not satisfied that you intend to leave the UK at the end of the study or at the end of 11 months whichever is sooner. Your application has therefore been refused under Paragraph A57E(b).
Because your application has been refused, the Health Surcharge payment made in relation to this specific application for a visa/entry clearance will now be refunded automatically. The refund will be made to the card used to pay the Health Surcharge. You should note that you may be required to make a fresh Health Surcharge payment with any fresh application.
