    Hi Geepegg,

    If you are under 25 years old and looking to provide evidence of
    3 years self-support then 36 months (3 years) worth of evidence is required, however it does not have to be consecutive years.

    We can accept evidence that shows self-support either proof of income or benefits, food and accommodation.

    Acceptable evidence can include:

    P60; month 12/week 52 wage slip; benefit receipt letters; Statement of Earnings; Employers letters; Tax returns; accounts
    If the student has been provided with food and accommodation in place of wages then this can be considered as self supporting. For students in receipt of benefits, the amount is not so important; the important factor is the claim dates. We must see the period of time the student has been claiming benefits.

    For students who will provide a bank statement to show savings, these savings must have been gained from previous income.Send clear copies of the evidence along with a cover letter, name and customer reference number.You can be confident that the evidence will be reviewed on a case by case basis by an assessor.Thanks Rona
