In February I was denied a UK General Visitor Visa because
- I didn't have sufficient funds
- I didn't provide a letter of consent from who I would be staying with
- I didn't provide enough evidence of ties to my home country (USA)
Before the visa application I had visited my boyfriend a total of 3 times- 5 days, 7 days, and 10 days.
In March I tried to visit my boyfriend after being denied and they held me and interviewed me for a total of 7 hours. I was eventually let in and stayed with him for 5 weeks. I just got back yesterday.
Now I have been accepted to University in London to study psychology. The course starts on October 16th. Will the recent visitor visa refusal affect my application? Will they think I'm not a genuine student?
I have sufficient funds from my parents to pay and I will be staying at the dorms at the university. My goal is to study and be closer to my boyfriend. I am a genuine student who just wants to study and be closer to my s/o. How are my chances?
