- Fees for level 3 courses are still being reviewed for 2018/19
Fees are inclusive of registration and examination fees.
Once on the course in the first 6 weeks the student may need additional support in terms of English Language which is on an individual basis and will include an additional fee.
Students coming from countries in the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)* are not International Students and therefore fees appointed to Students in the UK will apply. If English is not your first language, you must complete an IELTS test or equivalent, and supply a copy of the results with your application form.
You may be considered as a home student if you fall into one of the following categories:
- Any foreign national who has permanent residence in the UK and has been resident in the UK for three years;
- EEA*/Swiss migrant workers and their families who have lived in the EEA or Switzerland for three years;
- EU** nationals and their children who have lived in the EEA for three years;
- Refugees (recognised by the UK government) and their families; and those who have applied for asylum and have been granted exceptional leave to enter/remain, and their families.
*EEA (European Economic Area) countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
** Whilst Switzerland is not in the EEA, Swiss nationals have the same rights as EEA nationals.

Any EU National can study in the UK and is classed as a “home student”.
International students outside of the EU need to attend a full-time course, a minimum of 15 hours a week, in order to qualify for a student visa.
You will need to send us your full course fees for high risk countries. Please log on to UKBA to access a current list of high risk countries www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk. For countries which are not considered high risk a deposit of 40% of course fees will suffice once a place on the course is offered. The balance must be paid 2 weeks before enrolment or at enrolment in full. Students will not be registered until the required fees have been paid. This deposit is non transferable from one term/year to another and can only be refunded if the student visa or entry clearance is denied.
In order to obtain a refund, the student must provide an original proof in the form of a refusal notice from a British Embassy or the UK Border Agency (UKBA).
Refunds are subject to a £200 administration charge. There is no reduction in fees in the case of a late arrival or early departure from a course. A refund will NOT be considered if any of the following have occurred:
- The student has provided fraudulent or misleading information in their application.
- The student has broken the law or conditions of his/her visa and is thus required to leave the country as a consequence.
- The student’s visa is revoked as a consequence of not attending the course regularly.
- The student has broken the terms and conditions of admission to the College.
- The student wishes to leave the course without good reason.
No refunds will be given after a course/programme of study has started unless a course is discontinued and no suitable alternative is available. All applications for a refund must be made in writing, giving full details of why a refund is being asked for, and should be accompanied by any relevant documentary evidence.
