Hi, I am a mature student, studying ACCA + MBA with London School of Bussiness and Finance from the 2nd of November'2011. My course of study is more than 12 months and my student visa is for 3yrs. Now i am trying to call my wife as a dependant. Her visa was refused due to the following: 1)You have applied for entry clearance as the dependant of Mr. Somit Kapoor. However, you are not applying at the same time as your spouse and you have provided no evidence that you have previously held leave to remain as the partner of a Tier 4 (General) student or student for a course of more than six months within the three months preceding the date of your application. You are therefore refused under paragraph 319C (i) (2) & (3) of the immigration rules. 2)Furthermore, you have provided no evidence that your spouse is a government sponsored student studying a course. I am therefore not satisfied that you are the spouse of a Government Sponsored student who is applying for or has entry clearance or leave to remain for a course of study that is longer than six months. You are therefore refused under paragraph 319C (i) (4) of the Immigration Rules. 3)In addition, you have submitted a letter from London School of Business & Finance stating that your spouse is studying an ACCA course. Whilst I acknowledge that this is an NQF level 7 course the college is not a higher education institution. I am therefore not satisfied that you are the partner of a Tier 4 (General) student who is undertaking a course which is 12 months or longer in duration, and is of post-graduate level study, sponsored by a Sponsor which is a Recognized Body or a body in receipt of funding as a higher education institution from the Department for Employment and Learning in Northern Ireland, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales or the Scottish Funding Council. You are therefore refused under paragraph 319C (i) (5) of the Immigration Rules. I dont fully understand the 1st point. 2nd point, I agree that my insitute is not a government insitute. 3rd point my course is more than 12 months, as proof she submitted my visa copy and my CAS. Moreover LSBF is a listed body and not a recognised body. In this case what would you advice.
