Thanks for your advice
Hmm, it is the same program exactly but the mode changed to research mode, and I don’t have much time to apply for another VAL, I will start on 15 February while my VAL released since one week nearly, it was stuck for correction purpose since 27 September.
Better to send an email to EMGS and explain everything in details along with your passport number you could also call them .Unfortunately, I cant help you but I have seen ppl getting in so much trouble here for different reasons regrading their visa .
Nit stamped with student pass but they will stamp u with the validity same as whats written on the SEV to facilitate u with endorsement of student pass. The student pass endorsement xant be done at airport arrival, you have to surrender yr passport to university.
Sev of tourist visa? No such thing. Sev and tourist visa is 2 diff thing. And no you cannot get student pass on visit visa. U will be stamped with the validity as same as your SEV (in my case they stamp me 3 months to facilitate with student pass endorsement same as whats written on SEV)
