How is my application processed?

  1. When we have received your application form it will be considered for admission.
  2. UK/EU applicants may be interviewed in person or by telephone.
  3. International students who require a Tier 4 visa, will be interviewed in person (if they are in the UK) or via Skype(a video interview). If you don't have Skype, you can download it free of charge from www.skype.com. You will then be required to create an account on Skype and choose a Skype name. You must also have a webcam.
  4. Successful applicants will receive either a conditional offer of admission or an unconditional offer of admission.

Conditional offers: under the terms of a conditional offer, applicants are requested to provide evidence of pending qualifications that will allow them to meet the course entry requirements, for example, degree, A-level or English test results.

Unconditional offers are issued to applicants whose qualifications fully satisfy the entry criteria of their chosen programme in terms of qualifications, personal statement, references and, in some cases also, interview.

  1. You will be sent an offer letter and a student response form. You must complete a student response form and return it to the Admissions Office.
  2. UK/EU students will be required to pay their tuition fees or arrange for funding and then enrol on the course.
  3. International students will be required to pay your tuition fees in full if the course duration is 12-18 months or for the first year of study if your course duration is 24 months or 36 months.

If you are an international student and need a Tier 4 visa, you will be required to present evidence (bank statements) showing that you hold required maintenance funds to study in the UK. Bank statements must be in your own name or in the name of your legal guardian, e.g. father, mother, an adoptive or foster parent. Banks statements must demonstrate that you have held required funds, usually £9000.00, for a period of 28 days. If the financial documents are in the name of your legal guardian then you must submit an affidavit of support and sponsorship from your legal guardian and your birth certificate.
