If you are interested in one of our courses please check in advance that we accept International students onto that particular course, this information will be found on the Entry Requirements tab on the course page.
All International students must have a telephone interview and be accepted on to the course before you can book on.
International students will be required to pay 20% deposit + International student fee to book and hold your place on the course. The School will then send to you your enrolment letter and invoice to prove you are booked on to the course, you will need this documentation for your visa application.
Your remaining course fees are due one month before your course starts, and only after you have received your visa.
The School does not have a visa service, you are responsible for your visa application and documentation required, you will need to allow enough time for your visa application. We recommend applying as soon as you can for your visa, the application window opens 3 months ahead of your course start date. Please contact us for International cut off dates.
