Most people who apply for grad studies outside their country of residence are relying on scholarships for their tuition and funding for their cost of living through being research or teaching assistants at the universities to which they are applying.
Do scholarships count toward the financial requirements of UK student visa applications?
Do expected salaries from research or teaching assistantships count?
If expected salaries from assistantships don't count in the UK, how else might potential students be funded?
The only things that come to mind are:
- Staying with relatives in the country
- Being that rich (through parents' money?)
- Loans for the first year
Which of those could count toward the financial requirements?
