So this post is actually about how to demonstrate ties in a study permit application. There isn't a lot of discussion in the study permit forum about ties to country of residence so I wanted to discuss here since the ties aspect would, effectively, be the same. The duration of my education would be 16 months. In my study permit application, I have included: 1) Proof of six years of employment via an employment letter, pay slips and bank statement. 2) My employment letter states that I will continue this job after my education (my sponsor is my employer) 3) Proof of Minor shareholdings in my employer (Government issued document) 4) Proof of property under my name (Valuation and Title Deeds) 5) Travel History to the UK (Student Visa). Business trips to China and Thailand. 6) I studied in the UK for three years but visited my country every semester break (Summer, Easter and Winter). I pointed this out as well. I'm single, so no children or wife. I mention family ties but I'm not sure how i can prove those. What else should I include? Is this enough?
