my mate came here on student visa, unfortunately he was beaten up my few mates he was left on the road middle of the night he was too scared as he was young and had no one here so he didn’t take any medical help, those guys took his phone etc so he had no phone to contact anyone. He couldn’t contact his uni. He was off uni for about 20days due to that. The uni cancelled his scholarship as they thought he doesn’t want to study but that wasn’t the case.

Hello?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I’m still waiting haven’t heard anything yet

Hi,

I can help you for your concerns.

He paid NHS charges with his student visa application. If he is registered with GP then he can go to his GP or hospital for treatment.

If his sponsorship has been cancelled by his Uni then his visa is not valid till the end of his current expiry.

His Uni will inform to home office about his scholarship cancellation then Home office will issue him visa curtailment letter.

When he will receive curtailment letter then he can know what is his new visa expiry.

This curtailment letter will tell him about her further steps. he can apply new student visa or not.

I hope it will help you.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No he’s not registered with GP as yet
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I wanted to ask if he could register for GP now?

His visa is valid until he receives curtailment letter from home office. he can get register himself with GP.

I hope it will help you

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Can he still study here? I mean his uni cancelled his sponsorship so will he have to apply again? Or go back and apply for another uni? It’s just it’s dangerous for him to go back

For how long he has been in UK?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
This is his second year
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Okay so I just spoke to my mate he said he received emails and curtailment letters from home office but it didn’t say what next steps he can take

He can not apply new visa within the UK.

I hope it will help you

please give positive rating

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I mean what should he do as he can’t go back it’s dangerous for him

He has partner with British citizenship?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He’s not married
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He doesn’t want to get married yet as he goes he needs to help his dad and complete his studies

I am afraid, there is no option for him.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
