in order to study abroad you need to show the government of your host country that you have the necessary funds to study there for an academic year before you can be issued with a visa.
As an "International" student studying abroad, the host country needs to see that you can support yourself during your studies and need to see actual proof that the money is available, so that they can be ensure that you are not going to try and live off state funding. Also, if you left debts at the University or country, they would then be able to go to your 'sponsor' or 'guarantor' to retrieve the money to cover the debt.
|Insurance||Students travelling overseas as part of their degree programme can be covered by our travel insurance policy. Full details can be found here.|
