The Embassy aims to make decisions on visa applications within standard time, although this may take slightly longer during the busy periods. It is therefore, important to apply as early as you can. If an interview is required then the application process will take longer and you are therefore advised to apply for your visa at least 2 month before your course commences, but preferably earlier.
If your application is fully prepared, and accompanied by relevant documentary evidence of your circumstances, you may be issued a visa without an interview.
The final decision on whether you would require an interview or not will be taken by an Entry Clearance Officer at the respective Embassy, no one else can make this decision. However, generally students may not require an interview (subject to changes in visa regulations for different countries)
Students enrolled on a course for 12 months may be required to undergo a medical examination before leaving for desire country. This may vary depending on the country you are going to.
