Notes for International Students

International students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) will be required to receive a Tier 4 general student visa before attending the course. You can read more about this here.

International students must be fluent in English, and students from non-majority English speaking countries will be required to pass a UK Border Agency-approved English exam at the B1 level in all four components (reading, writing, listening and speaking) before they can apply for a Tier 4 student visa. This is equivalent to a mimimum band score of 4 on the IELTS (International English Language Testing System). A complete list of approved exams and required scores is available here.

The UK Border Agency classifies our course as a "privately funded further education college". Therefore, your family will not be able to come to the UK with you as dependants on a Tier 4 student visa for this course. You can read more about this here.

The UK Border Agency requires Tier 4 visa students from most countries to prove they have enough money for tuition and living costs in advance of their visa applications. Details are listed here.
