A credibility interview is designed to ensure that you comply with the UK’s immigration rules. In the interview, an Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) will try to establish that you are a genuine student, and not planning to use a student visa for holiday or work. The purpose of the interview is to show that you are serious about studying at a UK university, and that you have researched your chosen course and university.
You will normally be interviewed at the visa application centre when you submit your visa application documents. This interview is via a secure video system and you will be interviewed by a UKVI member of staff based in the UK.
Make sure you have researched the University of Huddersfield International Study Centre and the local area, and are able to explain why you chose it.
