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.

To accept the offer a confirmation payment is required comprising a non-refundable administration fee of £235 and £1,000 security deposit. Prior to enrolment (and before you apply for your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (‘CAS’)) you will also need to pay in advance tuition fees as set out in the offer letter.

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

When are your fees due?

The balance of tuition fees can be paid:

  • After arriving at the centre, the remaining balance of your tuition fees can be paid 28 days before the start date of the second academic term, or in full in advance. For full information about fees and refunds read our Terms and Conditions.
  • For two-term (Pre-Masters) courses: in full in advance.

Making a payment

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

Insurance

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.

Guardianship

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.
