Bank of China, Maxwell Alves Solicitors and University of Strathclyde

19 November 2013

UK has a long history of attracting international students from China. Studying in the UK is a major milestone for all overseas Chinese students. It forms the basis of a successful career whether returning back to China or staying in the UK upon completion of your study.  It represents a significant investment in terms of time and money by yourselves and your family. It is therefore important to ensure that your study here is plain sailing without unnecessary distractions.  Due to the recent immigration reforms, more students find the visa requirements confusing and onerous.  This seminar will go through the lengthy visa requirements as well as the various immigration options available for the students upon the expiry of their student visas. Some examples of the possible pitfalls in a typical student’s daily life will be highlighted and shared. Some practical ways of avoiding and handling these difficult situations will also be discussed. This seminar covers the options of the existing banking products and services, legal regulations and possible methods of avoiding and managing any crisis when occurs. There will be an interactive session for you to ask any related questions that you are concerned about studying in the UK.Maxwell Alves Solicitors is a leading law firm with a tradition of serving the Chinese community in the United Kingdom.
