Evidence of Funds

Evidence Of Funds for UK Student Visa

This page explains what documents you can send us as evidence of money to pay your course fees and living costs as an adult student under Tier 4 (General) of our points-based system.

You will score 10 points if you provide evidence that you have enough money to pay your course fees and living costs. To claim the 10 points, you must show evidence that you have paid all or part of your course fees and (if relevant) accommodation fees to your Tier 4 sponsor; and/or

  • are receiving official financial sponsorship; and/or
    • have enough money to cover your remaining course fees andliving costs, if any.

If we consider that you are ‘low risk’, you do not need to include the documents on this page with your application. However, you must confirm on your application form that you meet the requirements set out here and that you hold the required documents. We reserve the right to request any or all of these documents, and we will refuse your application if you do not provide them.

  • Personal bank or building society statements must show:
  1. your name, or the name(s) of your parent(s) or legal guardian;
    1. the account number;
    2. the date of the statement;
    3. the financial institution’s name and logo; and
    4. the amount of money available.
    5. You cannot use mini-statements from cash machines (ATMs) as evidence.

You can use electronic bank statements from an online account if they include all the information above. Each electronic statement should bear the bank’s official stamp on every page, or you must provide a supporting letter from the bank, on company headed paper, confirming the statements’ authenticity.

If you want to use a joint account as proof of your money, you must be named on the account along with at least one other person.

We will not accept statements that show the balance in the account on a particular day, as these do not show that you hold enough funds for the full 28-day period required.
