Confirmation payment

Once you have received an offer of a place at the International Study Centre, to secure your place you will need to return a signed acceptance form and a confirmation payment. The confirmation payment consists of:

  • £260 Enrolment Fee (non-refundable)
  • £1,000 Deposit
  • Insurance payment for StudyCare if applicable

On receipt of your signed acceptance form and the confirmation payment, we will send you your confirmation pack and your Student Statement document. Prior to enrolment (and before you apply for your Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (‘CAS’)) you will also need to pay in advance tuition fees as set out in the offer letter. 

No later than 28 days prior to your programme start date, and before arrival at the Centre, you will be required to pay the balance of the tuition fees along with the accommodation fees (if applicable) as set out on your individualised payment plan on your offer letter.

Making a payment

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.

When are your fees due?

After arriving at the centre the balance of your tuition fees for any remaining terms can be paid 28 days before the start date of the second academic term, or in full in advance.

For full information about fees and refunds read our Terms and Conditions.


All international students studying on campus 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 Plus policy or provide proof of adequate cover when they confirm their place. The StudyCare Insurance Plus 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 Plus.

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 Plus.


From September 1st 2019, all students under the age of 18 at the start of their course will receive our guardianship service free of charge. A guardian will support you during your time in the UK until you turn 18. More information will be provided after you apply.
