With a view to help youths looking to study in the United Kingdom, the British high commissioner has agreed to organise study visa camps to guide students.
Talking to HT, Aam Aadmi Party Member of Parliament from Sangrur Bhagwant Mann said the British deputy high commissioner to north-west India David Lelliott, had agreed to organise training camps in Punjab on his request. The step would help students to directly interact with the concerned authorities regarding the study visa.
Mann said the first camp would be organised in the first week of October in Sangrur, following which two camps would also be organsied in Jalandhar and Amritsar.
He said thousands of youths became victims of travel agents every year as these agents charged a hefty fee from them for documentation, but now the British high commissioner would directly guide students to procure a UK study visa easily without getting involved with these agents.
He further said the students would also be informed about names of registered educational institutions in England which would enable students to contact the British embassy in Chandigarh, New Delhi or Jalandhar, for any clarifications on visa-related forms.
