    Default Getting a student visa is bloody hell

    What in god's name is going on with the visa applications for students heading to the UK? The first time I went through the forms (last winter) they were annoying but reasonable. Now, they've become insane. They've added a six-page appendix requesting the most ridiculous bits of information and supporting documentation. Has something happened in the last year that prompted to this new-found level of absurdity? Has anyone else had to deal with this? Do they really think the rest of the world is all that interested in getting into the country?? I swear if it weren't for the philosophers at that school... :steam:

    The UK has gone crazy with anti terrorist precautions.
    I've done my fair share of form filling BS. Moving back and forth from Japan to NZ. I feel your pain.

    This certainly looks like a good way to create them (...terrorists I mean).

    I wonder why now... Who in their right mind would want to attack the UK? They're in almost as bad of shape as the poor old broke-ass US of A.

    How do you not lose your mind with these ridiculous exercises in tedium?

    You should see all the paper work I have to fill out for my professional registration there!
    I read some where they are trying to tighten up on immigration. Thank god, I don't have worry about a visa as well.
    Paper work sucks.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.
    Real life awaits and she is a demanding mistress.

    yeah, paper work blows. The thing that annoys me is the world hasn't gotten more dangerous, just more paranoid. It's like I want to tell the world to pop a couple of xanax and everything will be ok.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
