    i have started the online application already.i think its better to start piece by piece, you can save and continue later.you have to seek info from the international office of your uni before you can complete some sections.probably there is a guide for international students on how to complete the online visa application.uni of exeter has it.good luck to everyone.

    it has all the info you may need to proceed. You may also find the home office guidelines useful on the same website.
    Since our visa fee and the ihs is waived,we have to do due diligence with our visa applications to ensure success. If the visa is refused at the first instance, one has to pay for the visa fee which is 322 uk pounds if i remember correctly as well as the ihs fee of 225 uk pounds.

    hi kosb,
    congrats on your award.just curios,what is the value of the stipend for 2015-2016 because it appears the amount is adjusted upwards each year. last year i.e 2014-15 was 977 for those outside London and 1208 for those within London. this is set by the UK government for all awardees on UK government funded scholarship programmes.
    Mine is 977. Guess that's the rate for this session.Congrats on ur award too.
