International students and the need to prove financial capability

One of the main questions that will definitely be asked during a student visa interview is about your financial capability to support your study abroad. This is asked because the Consular Offices must be confident that you can financially control the entire length of your study program.  

Although documents must be brought to show that you funds in hand for the year of the program and then show a plan that indicates that you will be able to pay for the rest of the program, one may still struggle financially especially if you have a family to support back in your country.

All the financial burden could actually be shouldered by a scholarship. There are different scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. You just need to be resourceful and look and ask around for these scholarships. Scholarships will have specific requirements for a student to qualify. There are a lot of institutions offering scholarships to international students that you may explore so as to help to fulfil your dream of having international studies.

Another option to support a student’s dream of completing an international studies is to have a family member support or sponsor you during your studies abroad. Some students who do not have enough money to show financial capability ask their parents or other relatives to sponsor them.

Bottomline is, one has to be able to prove financial stability during the student visa interview. The student must be able to convince the consular officer that he has enough resources to support his studies abroad.
