Confirmation payment

Students applying for courses will be required to pay a confirmation payment. To accept the offer a confirmation payment is required comprising a non-refundable administration fee of £200 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 £6,000 in advance tuition fees.

Once the CAS has been issued, and before arrival at the Centre, you will be required to pay the balance of the first two terms’ 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?

Once you have received an offer of a place at the International Study Centre, you are required to pay your confirmation payment as per above. 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.

The balance of tuition fees can be paid termly, one month before the start of each academic term, or in full in advance.

Student life can be improved by having the appropriate accident and medical insurance for the duration of your time in the UK. Without insurance, students can face unexpected and expensive fees.

By taking out our own StudyCare insurance policy or providing their own cover, students can rest assured that they are protected against costs in the UK. The StudyCare policy covers loss of personal possessions whilst also providing health and medical insurance. Please tell your admissions advisor if you would like to purchase our StudyCare insurance. Proof of cover is required when students confirm their place.

StudyCare is targeted specifically to international students, offering support and protection during their time at the International Study Centre. You will be covered until the end of your course. For more information, please read the StudyCare page.
