It is difficult to stipulate a fixed amount for your expenses, as it depends on your lifestyle, needs and what part of the country you decide to stay. However, UK Visa and Immigration requires you to have a budget of £1,015 per month as a maintenance cost for at least 9 months (£9,135). This cost covers most of your accommodation, travel, books, food and gym.
If you wish to study a full-time course with any universities that are more than six months then you will need a Tier 4 (General Student) visa. Once you applied for the university, you will receive a conditional offer letter if any conditions are not met with your applications. Once you satisfied those conditions you will receive an unconditional offer letter. As a requirement to apply for this visa you will need a Confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) from the chosen university. It is a Sponsorship document of the university of yours, that they are willing to sponsor you to study in the UK. Once CAS has been issued, you will be given a supporting document that will contain a unique CAS number. This CAS number must be attached to your visa application form. As a UKVI process students might attend an interview after making an appointment. Once the process is completed, the visa will be issued in a certain amount of days.
