Can I Reapply To Study In The UK After Previous UK Overstayer

 

I just want to know as a Nigerian, if I can reapply to study in the UK after previous UK overstayer. So, I once overstayed my United Kingdom student visa for 3 years. However, seven years have passed since I left the UK now.

I am now a Registered Nurse and I want to return to the UK for Masters in Child Nursing. The tuition fee has been paid and the maintenance fund more than require is ready.

But my questions are – Can I Reapply To Study In The UK After Previous UK Overstayer

1. They ask me for the reason for overstaying, should I explain to them the reason?
2. What is the possibility of the UK student Visa being approved?

 

Response – Can I Reapply To Study In The UK After Previous UK Overstayer

1. You should answer it telling them the true.
2. Reasonable, if you satisfy the relevant requirements and didn’t frustrate the intentions of the rules. The ban period for overstaying should or may have past if you had left voluntarily at your own expense, etc.

Read The Ban of Overstaying here:

Currently migrants who overstay their leave to enter or remain by more than 28 days are subject to a re-entry ban.

Where a person subject to a re-entry ban seeks entry clearance or leave to enter, they will be refused, subject to certain exceptions for those seeking entry as family members.

The length of the ban varies from one year to 10 years depending on whether the migrant departed from the UK at their own expense or at public expense, or whether the migrant used deception.

Furthermore,  Overstayers are not permitted to work, they have no recourse to public funds, will not have access to free secondary healthcare and their details may be shared with credit agencies and other Government departments to deny access to benefits and services.

However, where they fail to depart from the UK promptly after their leave to enter or remain expires, the re-entry ban can act as a disincentive to depart. Under the changes to the Immigration Rules the ban will only apply where the migrant overstays by more than 90 days.

This extending period is to further incentivise voluntary departure and save the significant public expense incurred through enforcing removal.

In conclusion, in need for more information, please check UK immigration website for more info.
