Student route visa requirements and evidence

You must meet all the Student requirements and be able to provide evidence in the required format in order to make a successful application.

Supporting evidence for your Student visa application 

Depending on your situation, you will need some, or all, of the following documents: 

Student visa: supporting evidence

Differential Evidence Requirement

If you are a national of one of the exempt countries listed here, the Home Office specifies that you can be considered under the differential evidence requirement.

While this means that you do not need to send financial and educational qualification documents with your visa application, we strongly recommend that you obtain them ahead of applying. This is because the Home Office can request  the evidence as part of their decision process and they will refuse your application if you are unable to provide it within the specified timeframe.

You will still have to send your original passport and all other relevant supporting documents.
