Most Commonly Asked Questions in VISA Interview and How to Answer Them

Why have you chosen this country/ university? How did you decide to choose the course? Why not India?
These would be questions about your motivation for studying abroad and how you choose a university or program. You will be able to respond to these queries more effectively if you read about the country and the university beforehand. You could focus on how the chosen country is well-known for higher education owing to its academic structure, the best learning resources, and the exposure it gives to cultural diversity. To answer any university-specific question, you can mention the top-class facilities and faculty, notable alumni, or research done by the university which aligns with your interests. You might discuss how the chosen course is well-liked overseas and the advantages of studying it to support your desire to study abroad.

What is your academic background? Do you have any work experience? What are your scores in GRE/GMAT/IELTS/TOEFL?
Since the purpose of these questions is to determine the majors and subjects you have taken, you should respond appropriately by outlining your academic study mainly focusing on under graduation. In case you have any work experience, be sure to include information about your position within the organization as well as specifics about the duties you were responsible for. If questioned about your scores in quantitative or English proficiency tests, you must be prepared accordingly as well as be able to provide a breakdown of your sectional scores.

How do you plan to finance your study?
You should make a financial plan not only for tuition fees but should also factor in expenses like accommodation, food, health insurance, and transportation. If you have received a scholarship, then you need to provide a confirmation letter and be prepared to answer questions about the sponsor. Do a little research about the entity and prepare yourself to explain how you obtained the scholarship. If you have taken a loan, then you will have to provide bank documents to prove that the loan has been sanctioned. If your parents are funding your education, then you may have to submit their bank records and tax returns along with the original fixed deposit receipts. As your documents are reviewed, be willing to answer queries by having an approximate idea of the cost of each expense you factored into your budget.

What do you plan to do after graduation? Do you plan to work in the country you studied, or will you come back after studying?
Remember that you are requesting a student visa, therefore your responses should reflect this. For example, you should state that you intend to return to your home country and pursue a profession there. You might describe how you would use your education to your advantage to obtain better opportunities. Do not state that you want to stay back for a few years or move permanently to the country because it could make you seem like a possible immigrant.

General questions
These questions can be asked about any topics such as family ties or extra circular interests or foreign countries you have visited earlier or even about any achievements you have had so far. Listen attentively to the question and honestly, no need to exaggerate any details, as the officer would just be trying to know you better.
