    Hi,

    I've gotten an offer from a University to study a postgraduate course in the UK. However, I haven't gotten any funding from any scholarships in my country. I've applied for some scholarships for international students in the UK, but I don't think i'd be successful.

    My boyfriend has agreed to pay for my tuition fees by taking out a bank loan, I'd also be staying with him in London. However, would the UK Gov accept that as finance for my student visa application, or do I need to have some money in my own bank account? So essentially, I'll be living with my boyfriend, who will be paying my tuition with a loan. If I apply for a visa with all the necessary proofs and sponsor letter from him, will that be ok?

    Any advice or help would be appreciated!

    Thank you so much!

    The guidance on what kind of financial support you can and cannot show and what evidence is required is pretty clear on the UKBA website. The uni should also have some guidance or someone you can talk to.
