My UK visa was rejected once in 2013 and twice in 2018. how should I apply againenter image description here

  • It's a terrible refusal. Doesn't seem fair. You want to attend your graduation. What's wrong with that?

    Exactly, the student should decide where they want to graduate not the Home office. Dec 14, 2018 at 6:34

    @greatone I think you've misunderstood. It's not "I'm rejecting your application because you're just coming for a graduation ceremony." It's "I'm rejecting your application because the rest of your application isn't up to scratch and coming to a graduation ceremony isn't essential." Claiming to be a student and not giving any evidence of that was a big mistake. Dec 14, 2018 at 14:07
  • Very relevant: UK visa refusal on V 4.2 a + c (and sometimes 'e'). Dec 14, 2018 at 14:16
  • @DavidRicherby I did submit my university record book and results sheet highlighting my resit subjects. But they have not taken that into consideration. What I don't understand is that every student is entitled to a graduation ceremony, how can the Home office decided if I need to attend my graduation ceremony or not, after the University send me a letter stating that I may attend the graduation ceremony. I have submitted emails and letters I have received from the university, which they have overlooked. Dec 17, 2018 at 2:57

1 Answer 1


I think the second bullet point makes it clear what you were missing in try #2

You have submitted no information from your institution you are studying at

I would get a letter from the University about what you've been doing with them and include that in your next attempt.

  • Hi, since there are two HE institutions involved here. Can you confirm which institution's record book / result sheet have you submitted? The one in UK or the one in Sri Lanka?

    @SarahDissanayake I think they're looking for a letter from the University explaining what you're studying (i.e. "Sarah is studying a Masters of _________ and will complete her degree in 2019").
