Confirmation payment

Once you have received an offer of a place at the International Study Centre, you are required to pay a confirmation payment. The deposit is held to cover damages and any other incidental expenses. Any monies left at the end of your course will be returned to you.

  • Payment must be made in full, in advance of your course.

Making a payment

Please visit our How to Pay page to find out how to make a payment. 


International students can rest easy by having the appropriate accident and medical insurance whilst in the UK. Without insurance, students can face unexpected and expensive fees.

Students are able to take out our StudyCare insurance policy, which covers loss of personal possessions as well as health insurance. To purchase this policy, please inform your admissions advisor. Alternatively, students can provide proof of their own insurance.

StudyCare was developed especially for international students to protect them throughout their studies and covers you until the end of your course. For more information, visit the StudyCare insurance page.
