Application and interview

Applications

How to apply

Choose the course you are interested in and click on the apply button.  

Once you have checked to see if you meet your visa requirements and applied for a programme, these are the next steps:

Have an interview

Once your application has been accepted, a tutor from your programme will conduct a Skype/telephone interview with you. This is not only to check your identity and English language level, but also your suitability for the programme and to give you the opportunity to ask your own questions about the programme and studying with us!

Pay a deposit

Once you have received an electronic offer letter, you will need to pay a deposit in order to secure your place on the programme and get your confirmation of acceptance of studies (CAS) letter.

If your programme is less than 14 weeks long you will need to pay the full fees.

Get your confirmation of studies letter

A CAS letter is sent to you if you meet the conditions of your offer letter. A CAS letter is valid for six months from the date it is issued.

Apply for a visa

If your programme is less than six months you can apply for a short-term student visa or as a child visitor. For programmes over 11 months you will need to apply for a Tier 4 visa.

Visa details can be found on our visa and immigration page.

Pay your programme fees

You will need to pay the rest of your programme fees four to six weeks before your programme starts.

Receive your pre-arrival pack

Once we have issued your CAS letter, we will send you a pre-arrival information pack. Please read this thoroughly as it will give valuable information and prepare you for your time in the UK.
