28 day rule for maintenance funds extended for in country student applications.

Students applying for a Tier 4 visa to study in the United Kingdom must show that they have held the money needed for their course fees and maintenance for a 28 day period ending no more than 1 month before their application.  

The UK Border Agency (UKBA) brought in a concession, allowing applicants to only show that they have the required funds in place on the date that they apply.

This concession ends on 1 October 2009 for out of country applications, however, the UKBA have extended the concession for in country applicants.

The UKBA said:

“We recognise that many students already in the United Kingdom will not have had to show this money before, so we have agreed to allow a longer transitional period for all Tier 4 applications made in the United Kingdom to allow for this adjustment. 

“Applicants making a Tier 4 application from in the United Kingdom will only need to show proof that they have the money needed, on the day that they apply. The length of this concession will be announced in due course. Applicants must still provide the correct documents to support their application.” 

From 1 October 2009 students applying from outside the United Kingdom must show that they have held the required money for a 28 day period ending no more than 1 month before their application.

  1. Hi! I have a problem. I already had 4 UK visas and now I am applying for Tier 4 but the bank statements I have received show only 27 days period. actually the needed sum of money is still there but the statements show the date i put money there-4th of June till 1st July/ I cannot order a new statement because that would take a long time. the bank is in UK (LLoids) and I am in Russia. so, can I attach just print-outs from internet that show that the money are still on my account or they will not have any value?/ What shall I do?? I have already booked an appointment at the visa centre and already have all the other documents.
