Dear All,

I am in a bit of a tricky situation. I am just finishing off my bachelors degree in the UAE (December), and have a conditional offer for Masters from the University of Glasgow (UoG) beginning on January 13.
My difficulty is regarding the visa. UoG needs my final transcript to issue me CAS using which I apply for a tier 4 visa. My current university will issue final transcripts by January 3 and UoG opens on January 6. Therefore, by the time I apply for an urgent visa (5 working days) it will be 9 January. This makes it seem like I am bound to miss the first few days.
An option to consider is for me to go to the UK using a visit visa to reach on time and then transfer to a tier 4 visa once I am there. Has anyone else done that before? Please let me know what could be done in my case

Contact Glasgow direct for guidance and perhaps they can figure out a compromise. Maybe a tourist visa without being a student plus they let you attend lectures.
