18 year old daughter thinking of taking a gap year

Recommended Posts

Some advice on the following would be greatly appreciated.

 

My 18 year old daughter is to be included on our application for a 176 visa on the strength of her still being in full time education. When I make my application is approximately six weeks time she will still be an A-level student and so eligible to be included on the application.

 

This evening she has decided that she may decide to take a gap year instead of going to uni straight away. My dilemma is whether she will be eligible to be included in the application if she decides to do this. Like I say, my application will be made in April and she is not planning to make a decision until August ish.

 

Which date would be relevant for inclusion?

 

Cheers

I'm no expert, but is she applying for university, because if she has a deferred place, i.e. apply for a place for the year after next, then she will still be in education. Even if she is not planning on going it might be worthwhile applying, I applied for a deferred place when I wanted to take a gap year, in the end I decided to take a few more years out, and jsut called the university befor eI was due to start and revoked my place. Apart from the UCAS application fee (approx £50) it doesn't cost anything - so could it be a loophole for you?

 

I hope this helps, China

I would take great care with this, I believe she needs to be dependent at the time of visa decision, not the time of visa application.

Yes, but why would his daughter take a year off to sit around at home eating his food though. :wink:

 

I don't think this is a show stopper, but I think it needs care.

Again I don't know - hopefully someone who knows for sure will be along soon.

 

I wonder if what she is doing in the gap year may make a difference and think that it is the time the decision is made that matters.

If she was to undertake work in teh gap year - would she still be classified as dependent on you. If she is travelling and relying on funds supplied by you probably.

 

I think that you should look into it carefully and probably get expert advice to make sure you keep all the boxes ticked.
