Need to apply for funding or a scholarship?

In order to apply successfully for a student visa, you must provide financial evidence that you have enough money or funding to cover your first year of tuition fees and least nine months of living expenses. The most common reason for visa refusals is not having the correct financial evidence or the correct amount of funding.
