  • £235 Enrolment Fee (non-refundable)
  • £1,000 Deposit
  • Insurance payment for Study Care if applicable

On receipt of your signed acceptance form and the confirmation payment, we will send you your confirmation pack and your Student Statement document.

Once the CAS has been issued, and before arrival at the Centre, you will be required to pay the balance of the first two term’s fees along with the accommodation fees (if applicable) as set out on your individualised payment plan on your offer letter.

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 Plus 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 Plus page.


From September 1st 2019, all students under the age of 18 at the start of their course will receive our guardianship service free of charge. A guardian will support you during your time in the UK until you turn 18. More information will be provided after you apply.
