The amount required per month for a Tier 4 student will rise from £800 to £820

The amount required per month for a Tier 4 Dependant will rise from £450 to £460

Therefore if you are making a visa application for the first time, or if you are extending your visa but have studied in the UK for less than 6 months, the full maintenance requirement is £7,380 for a Tier 4 applicant and £4,140 for a Dependant.

If you are currently in the UK and you are extending your visa having already studied a course for 6 months or more, the full maintenance requirement is £1,640 for a Tier 4 applicant and £920 for a Dependant.

Any application submitted on or after 1st July 2014 will have to meet the new maintenance requirements, any application submitted before this date will not be affected by the changes.
