Yesterday, a film produced by Sheffield University was unveiled at the House of Commons which explains the student visa application process and features students from China talking about their experience of the system. The film includes behind the scene footage at the UK Visa Application Centre in Beijing and captures a glimpse of how young people in China who wish to study in the UK go through the visa process and go on to become students in the UK. The film documents the journey of two talented Chinese students as they prepare to further their education at renowned UK universities. The film is aimed at encouraging Chinese students to choose the UK as the destination to study.
University of Sheffield: Film Gives ‘Unprecedented’ Insight into Student Visa Applications
The students featured in the video, Qu Yinjiao and Lü Meng, are two of 65,000 students who applied to the British Embassy in Beijing last year to benefit from the first class education offered in the UK.
The UK is a world-leader in higher education with more top-rated institutions than any other country apart from the US. It welcomes over 400,000 international students annually, responsible for pumping £7.9 billion pounds into the UK economy every year. Crucial indirect impacts include increasing the pool of employable graduates for the global knowledge economy and establishing trade and research networks between countries.
Qu Yinjiao, 21, who is now studying translation and interpretation at Swansea University, stated:
“I chose to study in the UK because I am very interested in the UK’s culture, language and the important role the UK plays on an international stage. The UK is a great country which has a huge influence in major international relations and to study in the UK opens a large window to see the world and enhance your vision and knowledge.”
Talented Chinese Students Should be Welcomed to UK
Speaking on the film, Professor Sir Keith Burnett, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield, stated:
“This film is extremely important for our relationship with students and families in China. Filmed in both Chinese and English, it helps applicants understand the processes involved in coming to study in the UK, and it gives us renewed respect and understanding for the huge decision Chinese families make when they send their precious children to study in the UK.
It is important for us to show that we respect the commitment they are making, and that talented Chinese students who are so crucial to our universities and to the UK will be welcomed and treated well when they come to study with us.”
