Study visa rejected - need advice and probably a lawyer

Hi Guys,

So my brother applied for a study visa and it got rejected, the reasons they gave were that there is no grounds for him to want to study an "English taught MBA" in Switzerland and that the studies are part time and permits are for full time students. I get this, but the only reason he applied for part time was that there is only one course starting in June-August because it is the summer season, then he would take 2 courses per trimester meaning 4 courses per semester. I still have to check with the university because the migrasionsamt say that he would study onle Friday's and Saturday's but that is not true (or at least my brother says). Anyhoo, I have ten days to contest this, do you have any pointers, dvice and do you think we should contact a lawyer or is it not worth it?

Thanks!!

Maybe you need to change the date for him to enter when the program goes full time and skip the summer session.

Then of course you need to state why he wants to go to this program in particular and of course if he is living with you then he clearly isn't going to study in Estonia (or any other county you don't live in).

THe problem Mia is that the fact that I am here is not enough a reason for him to pursue his studies here, or at least that is what they think!!!

Re: Study visa rejected - need advice and probably a lawyer

I checked the programme at FHNW: this MBA doesn't belong to main studies (Bachelor/Master) but is offered as continuous education (Weiterbildung). And it's an MBA from the Edinburgh Business School and as such not recognised by the swiss authorities in matter of continous education. The fact that the programme is accredited and offered at the FHNW doesn't change anything.

I don't know the rules that apply for student visas, but if the condition is to enroll in a main and CH- recognised study programme, this MBA wouldn't fulfill the requirements.

Re: Study visa rejected - need advice and probably a lawyer

I forgot this: according to the information on internet, classes would be only on Friday afternoon or Saturday:

"Die Lehrveranstaltungen (Freitags oder Samstags) werden von ausgewiesenen Dozierenden der FHNW in Basel ausschliesslich auf Englisch gehalten. Sie finden wahlweise an Freitagnachmittagen oder Samstagen statt."

Maybe this isn't enought to be entitled for a student visa.
