How to apply for a UK Visa
You can apply before 6 months to start of the course. This has to be done online from the government website and it requires a CAS from a government approved university. If you find that university course, you can apply online with the required qualifications.
If you have the basic qualifications required for that course, the university grant you an Unconditional offer. Once you receive it, you have to pay the minimum amount of course fee or full payment as university instructions. If half of the fee is paid, the balance should be added to the maintenance fund and hold in the account for 28 days.
For example, in the previous article it was stated that for 9 month, main application require £11385.00. If you have to pay half of the course fee, you have to hold remaining balance in your account.
At present, you need to have money in your account for 28 days to issue a CAS.
