Thanks for your patience.

1. You can switch to a spouse visa from within the UK

2. You can stay as a dependant

3. Your 2 years at graduate visa will certainly count towards 10 years long residence.

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
My study time was 4 yeas graduate visa 2 years total 6 years. Now if I will spend next 4 years as a dependent can i directly apply 10 years ILR or I have to switch some another visa to make myself main applicant?

May I ask what will be the main applicant's status when you are planning to switch as a dependant?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
Tier 4 student in master’s programme

You should be able to apply as his dependant if all the following apply:

You could also switch to a skilled worker visa yourself if eligible at that time, it will also count towards your 10 years of legal residence.

Is there anything else I can help with?
