Thanks for yoru reply.
An unused visa of this type does not form part of the general grounds for refusal that the UKBA are allowed to use to deny a new visa application. They may make enquiries of you to establish that it was not a frivolous application in the first place, but your explanation above would be sufficient to satisfy themselves that it was made in good faith. You would obviously have to pad it out a bit an d provide details.
It would not affect your right to secure a visa following studies, but you should know that PSW visas are being scrapped so you will not be able to use this to secure your leave to remain when your studies eventually cease. There may be another form of visa available to you but it obviously depends on the prevailing political climate at the time.
There are no other complications with respect to the unused visa that I can think of.
If this is useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my time. You will be free to ask follow up questions. Kind regards,Tom
