Living in QMUL or University of London halls of residence


Receiving official sponsorship

She will be receiving a bursary of £1,100 for 12 months.

Student B’s bursary of £1,100 per month is below the required £1,265 per month for Tier 4 (General) Student immigration permission. The shortfall is £165 per month.

As student B’s programme is 9 months or longer, she will need to show that she has the funds to make up this shortfall for 9 months.

£165 month x 9 months = £1,485

In addition to evidence of her scholarship and bursary (this may be included in the CAS), student B will need to show that she has held a minimum of £1,485 for a 28 day period ending not more than 31 days before she submits her Tier 4 (General) Student immigration application. Student B will need to use this guide to make sure that the evidence of her funds meet the requirements.
