    Hi

    I have to put (on my Visa application) the length of my course in calendar months. It starts on 11 September 2009 and ends on 4 June 2010.

    Which is the correct answer, 9 months or 10?

    Essentially it's 9.

    9 months after September 11 is June 11, which is before the course ends.

    Obviously, you will move in earlier and leave later than that so put 10 months to be safe.

    Well, I thought that they would count 4 days of June as a whole month (Sept+June=2 calendar months?!), that's why I was asking.

    To be honest I can't afford to be creative on my Visa papers, it's my first time and I have no idea how rigid UK Visa Agency is. So, is it ok to write 9 months?

    Is there any way you can contact them to double check? It might be the safest bet
