Explaining the application process
We’ve created a step-by-step guide to our admissions process, so you know exactly what to expect from beginning your application form to arriving at the International Study Centre.
1. Apply online
Our new online application form lets you take as long as you need to complete it. We’ve made it easy to save your progress and come back later, as long as you remember to save enough time to organise your visa – which can take up to several weeks depending on your location.
2. Speak with an advisor
One of our helpful Student Enrolment Advisors will be in contact by phone within 48 hours of submitting your application.
3. Receive an offer letter
If your application is successful, you’ll receive an offer letter from us. We’ll be here to talk to you about your next steps and explain any conditions you need to meet, as well as discussing a payment plan for your fees.
4. Confirm your offer
By confirming your offer and securing your place with us as soon as possible, you’ll have enough time to plan your accommodation, visas and travel plans.
5. Pay your fees
The first step to confirming your fees is to pay your confirmation fee and return your signed acceptance form. You can find out more about paying your fees here.
6. Receive your CAS
After paying your fees, your Student Enrolment Advisor will issue your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) so you'll be able to start applying for your visa.
7. Access visa and accommodations support
We offer completely free guidance on applying for your visa and booking your accommodation. We can even recommend you to a local visa service, free of charge.
8. Plan for your arrival
We have lots of useful tips available to help you get ready to arrive in the UK. We offer a pre-departure pack full of helpful advice, as well as an induction pack which includes all the exciting events you can enjoy once you arrive.
We can’t wait to welcome you to the International Study Centre. No matter what you need help with, we are here for you. From arranging airport transfers to the International Study Centre, to answering any questions you have, we want you to feel as prepared as possible about studying with us.
