At G8Way Club we offer specialist Membership Benefits that have been designed and developed to help protect your Tier 4, or short-term study UK Visa. Should you find that you have had your UK Visa application rejected, or breached the terms and conditions of your Visa, G8Way Club Membership Benefits offer you the expert legal advice and support you need. We appreciate just how important your student status is whilst in the UK, that’s why we’re dedicated to finding you a solution that meets your individual requirements.
It’s likely that you will have spent a number of years achieving student grades for your chosen UK University. Also your family and/or sponsor will have spent a lot of time, effort and in particular money in supporting and continuing to support you, so why not make sure that your UK Visa has the support and protection it deserves? While it’s not a mandatory requirement G8Way Club Membership is there to assist you when things do not go as planned, you are a long way from home, and it is a sensible thing to do.
Under the terms of your UK Visa, you’ll be expected to adhere to a set of specific rules and regulations. If you happen to violate any of these, even if it’s by accident, there can be serious consequences, such as having to terminate your studies and leave the UK. Whilst you are away from home in an unfamiliar environment this can be an extremely worrying and stressful situation to have to deal with. By becoming a G8Way Club Member you’ll be able to enjoy your studies and explore the UK with the added peace of mind that we are here to help you when you need it most.
Making a claim is quick and easy, and if a Member needs to speak to us, we are here for you. Simply contact one of our advisers by phone, or preferably email, and we can guide you through the process one step at a time.

A G8way Club Member can cancel their membership at any time. However the member is entitled to a statutory cooling off period of 14 days from the date the G8Way Club Membership application was paid. This provides a period of time when the applicant can reflect on the G8Way Club Membership application and cancel the application with a full refund of the Club Membership payment made. The Member does not have to provide a reason for the cancellation. The statutory cooling off period ends at midnight 14 days from the Start Date detailed on the Membership Certificate after which a G8Way Club Membership fee repayment may not be made.
It is recommended that a member becomes familiar with the G8Way Club Membership Terms and Conditions and raises any concerns with Membership Services.
G8Way Club Membership Benefits do not make monetary payments to Club Members. However Membership Services and G8Way Club Benefits will be available in a member’s hour of need to pay Legal Representatives and the associated costs of representing a member with the UK immigration Authorities and/or the Police.
All we ask in return is that the membership fee is paid, the Member abides by the G8Way Club Membership Terms and Conditions and that a Member is open and honest with us on any information we request to provide assistance and support. G8Way Club Membership is an annually renewable, a discount may be charged for subsequent year’s membership.
