Coming to Cardiff

Can I show a reduced amount of money if I was studying recently in the UK?

Yes, but only in very limited circumstances. You only have to prove you have 1 year’s tuition fees and £1,640 (i.e. living costs for 2 months) if:

  • You have a current Tier 4 student visa that has not yet expired and
  • Your new course at Cardiff University starts within 1 month of the expiry date of your current visa and
  • The course you have just finished was 6 months or longer.

All students and their dependants applying for Tier 4 leave on and after 12 November 2015 will not be able to benefit from this provision.
