Maintenance funds to study in the UK for International Students – Living Expenses for International Students

You must demonstrate sufficient funds to cover your course tuition if you have already paid in advance. Additionally, the rules apply differently to institutes located within or outside London. So, London refers to the City of London and its 32 boroughs.

Expenses associated with living inside and outside of London (maintenance fund).

The remaining Fee if you have +

  • In London: £12,006 (£1,334 for each month of the course (up to a maximum of 9 months) – Always keep £1000 extra as the exchange rate can go up or down.
  • Outside London: £1,023 for each month of the course (up to a maximum of 9 months) – Always keep £1000 extra as the exchange rate can go up or down) 
  • Each Dependent £845 Per month (inner London), £7605 in Total
  • Each Dependent £680 Per month (Outer London), £6120 in Total

If your tuition fee is £10000, and you have submitted £6000, you must show the maintenance fee below.

Remaining Tuition Fee: £4000 + Maintenance fee of inside London University: £1334 X 9 = £12006

So in this circumstance, you must show at least  £16006 inside London Universities.

Student Dependent Maintenance Fund: 

Maintenance Funds as above. And the maintenance fund must show in the joint account if anyone applies with a dependent. Or it would be best if you had a consent form, relationship certificate, etc. 

What is the 28-day rule for UK visas?

A deposit for maintenance (tuition fees and living expenses) must remain in your account for 28 consecutive days. Your application will be rejected if the balance falls below the required amount by one day during the 28 days.
