UK Student Visas
Vishal Jairath, Regional Head-South Asia at VFS Global Services Pvt Ltd, has said that the students, who are applying for a UK visa, have to go through a video screening that would be strictly implemented. It is now mandatory for the applicants of the student visa to go through video screening with the officials.

Earlier, the student applicants would be invited to the ambassadorial missions for a face-to-face interview. But, now this procedure has been replaced with the latest procedure, according to which the applicants have to go through a video screening with the officials. 

The students have to go through the video screening at the time of filing the application itself. Two video conference booths are now available, whose broadcasts will be beamed to Sheffield, United Kingdom. Mr. Vishal Jairath, has told the reporters that the video screening is not distinct to the applicants of India, and would not discourage the applicants who are genuine. 

British Deputy High Commissioner to Chennai, Bharat Joshi, has said that the video interviews are intended to limit the fraudsters, who present themselves as students in order to gain entry into UK. The video interviews would generally estimate the English language capability, analyze the applicants based on the knowledge in their course of study and analyze the applicants depending on their future prospects in United Kingdom. 9 of 10 applications are generally successful.

He added that currently there is no plan for extending this method of screening to other visa categories.
