Complete and return the Registration Form to the Admissions Office with the following documents:

  • School reports for the last two years and examination certificates where appropriate

For Non-EU students only- in addition, we require:

  • Copy of passport
  • A recent photograph (passport style)
  • Level of English – the UK Visa and Immigration Service require us to assess every applicant’s level of English.  For students under 18, we ask every applicant to take our English test under supervised conditions.  Students over 18 must provide evidence that they have achieved CEFR Level B1 or above in a UKVI approved English Language qualification - please request current list here.
  • Please provide us with copies of your documents, except for the Registration Form which, if emailed, should then be sent in the post.  Make sure that you keep the originals of your documents safely as they will be required for submission with your visa application.
  • Once the Registration Deposit has been paid, a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) Number will be issued to support the visa application.

An Offer Letter will be issued to successful applicants with an Acceptance Form which needs to be returned with payment of the non-refundable Registration Fee of £250 and £500 Deposit (Please note that the Deposit is held for the duration of the student’s course and credited to the final account and will not be refunded in the case of a student deciding not to take up their place except in the event of a visa refusal for which we will require a copy of the official notice)

Once we have received the completed Acceptance Form and Registration Deposit, we will issue an Enrolment Pack and an invoice prior to the course start date.  Each term’s fees are payable on the first day of term or the starting date of the course.  Payment of fees should be made by cheque, bank transfer or banker’s draft.
