Organisational process

After choosing a college, the process of preparation for study increases its pace sharply. In the last 10 days I have received a contract with the business school, application form for the college, contacts of my mentor in the business school, a letter for the embassy (to apply for a visa) and some other messages and requests. Most of those documents were just organisational steps, but a couple of facts are worth mentioning in detail.
Unfortunately, as the study is part-time, my visa will be of the ‘student visitor’ category. This type of visa does not give one the right to stay permanently or even work in the UK. I have no idea why I would do that, but it would be something like a new degree of freedom: one more country open for business, and I value such things per se, even without any plan to use them.
The other interesting step was my mentor, who appointed last week. Now, for the first time, I could ask him what mentors do in general. So now I can describe it here. The idea is that the mentor is a person who studied on the programme and can answer any of your questions: what should you think about, who is who among the faculty and subjects and other things on your study. Probably, when the study starts, I will have many other sources of information, but now it is a great chance, and I am in the process of creating a long list of questions.
