In order to apply for a Student visa you will need to show that you have enough money to cover your first year’s tuition fees and to support yourself (and any dependants) during your studies (Financial).
Meeting the financial requirements for a Student visa makes up 10 points of the 70 points required, so it’s important that you understand exactly which financial documents to submit with your visa application.
If you are applying for a course lasting 9 months or more, the maximum amount that you will need to show for financial requirements is £9,135 which is the equivalent of £1,015 per month. These funds need to be in your bank account for a minimum of 28 days prior to making your visa application.
Please read our guide to the Tier 4 financial requirements.* Our guide will advise you on the following areas:
- How much money you need.
- How long you need to have the money for.
- Documents needed to meet the strict Home Office requirements.
*Please be aware that we'll be updating this guide based on the Home Office's published guidance in the next few weeks to reflect the changes in the visa rules.
