Genuine Student

It is very common for students to be refused Tier 4 General student visa on grounds of applicant not being a genuine student. The genuineness issue is usually raised by the Home Office due to lack of knowledge on part of the student about the course he/she is going to study in the Uk as well as relevance of the course to the career the student wants to pursue as a result of completion of the course etc. The students are often questioned by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) as to why they have chosen a specific institution of study and whether or not they have considered other institutions as well before enrolling for their course with the institution of study they have chosen.
