They will be asking for proof that you can pay fees upfront and have a substantial sum to cover living expenses in the bank - if you are on benefits, do you have that?

 

Unless of course you have won a scholarship to cover fees and expenses.... then you'll just need written proof from the University stating that, and the sum you'll be awarded.

I will be going as a student and my partner will be still working here in the uk and paying for my fees, he intends to join me with my daughter a year into my course.

It doesn't matter, requirements of the student visa are that you have to provide proof you have funds upfront plus living expenses. The Uni will also ask for upfront payment, standard for international students.

Ive been told by my agent that because im from the UK we only need to tick the box to say that I have enough funds because I am assessment level 1. It says this on the forms for the visa too, I just wondered what sort of checks they do on me? x
