Please note:

  • A 60% deposit is required to secure a place on the course. The remaining fees are payable in full, on or before enrolment. Students whose fees will be paid by a sponsor organisation (e.g. government/embassy) must produce formal written evidence of this - before they can be accepted for enrolment. Please see our ‘Terms and Conditions of Acceptance’, which will be sent with your Offer Letter for full details of payments and our refund policy.
  • *Tuition fees for these courses are at the same rate as UK students. The difference in fees is for additional support from the International Office for applying as an international student, i.e. application processing, pre-arrival support, free airport pick-up, assistance with accommodation, advice and support from the International Office throughout the course and access to the international students’ social programme. English classes are also included for international students. EU students who apply as “home students” and pay UK fees will not be eligible for these services.
  • All information is correct at the time of writing. The College reserves the right to alter information without notice at any time.

Additional costs for international (EU) students

  • IELTS examination fees of approximately £160 per examination (if applicable). We arrange up to 2 optional IELTS examinations per year in the College.
  • Cost of course books (approximately £20 - £30 per book; usually 1 book per class) and any additional specialist learning materials required, eg sketch books and art materials for those students taking an art-related subject.
  • Social activities - the International Office aims to organise up to 4 free trips per year, plus a Summer Ball and Awards Evening for International Foundation students. Trips and activities are usually advertised in a Social Programme leaflet provided during Induction.
  • General living expenses - in addition to your accommodation fees you will need money to cover the cost of things such as food, travel and other day-to-day expenses such as mobile phone bills. If your accommodation fees do not include heating and electricity, then you will also need extra money to cover the cost of these things (NB: these are included in the fees for Homestay and student halls of residence accommodation, but are not usually included for private rented accommodation). As a guide, you should allow around £1000 per month in addition to your course fees to cover living expenses.
