Student visa maintenance requirements
If you (and any dependants) are applying from inside the UK and have held valid UK immigration permission for at least 12 months preceding the date of your visa application, you will automatically meet the financial requirements. This means you will not be required to submit financial evidence to support your visa application. Holidays and short absences from the UK do not break the 12-month period, but you must have spent the majority of the time in the UK.
Please see our online information on who can apply from inside the UK.
If you are applying outside of the UK or you have not held valid UK immigration permission for at least 12 months, you must meet the maintenance requirements below.
