Insurance

All international students should have the protection of appropriate accident and medical insurance for the duration of their time in the UK. The consequences of being uninsured can be extremely difficult and expensive.

Students can either take out our own StudyCare insurance policy or provide proof of adequate cover when they confirm their place. The StudyCare insurance policy covers loss of personal possessions as well as providing health and medical insurance. Please let your admissions advisor know if you wish to purchase our StudyCare insurance.

StudyCare has been designed specifically to offer international students comprehensive protection and support during their studies at the International Study Centre. The insurance covers you until the end of your course. Learn more about StudyCare insurance.

Price validity

  • 2017/18 tuition fees are valid from 13 February 2017 for students who apply after this date, and are in £ sterling. The enrolment fee will be £200 from 13 February 2017.
  • Accommodation fees are guideline only. Rents are subject to increase each academic year.

Confirmation payment

To accept the offer a confirmation payment is required comprising a non-refundable administration fee of £200 and £1,000 security deposit. Prior to enrolment (and before you apply for your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (‘CAS’)) you will also need to pay £6,000 in advance tuition fees. Once the CAS has been issued, and before arrival at the Centre, you will be required to pay the balance of the first two terms’ fees along with the accommodation fees (if applicable) as set out on your individualised payment plan on your offer letter.

When are your fees due?

Once you have received an offer of a place at the International Study Centre, you are required to pay your confirmation payment as per above. The deposit is held to cover damages and any other incidental expenses. Any monies left at the end of your course will be returned to you.

The balance of tuition fees can be paid termly, one month before the start of each academic term, or in full in advance. Accommodation fees can be paid yearly in advance or termly.
