Getting a student visa can be a tedious and lengthy process, but if you’re organized and start early, it should go smoothly. In most cases you’ll be applying for a long-term student visa at the embassy of the respective country. Each country in the EU has its own application process, requirements, and processing time. The university you’ve been accepted at should be able to guide you on these details – and you’ll begin this process only after you’ve been accepted to your school. Search within the BTS forum for keywords, like “visa” and “Czech Republic”, for instance, to learn on-the-ground wisdom from those who have gone through this process already and have wisdom to share.
