Insurance

It is important that all international students 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 purchase our own StudyCare Insurance Plus policy by confirming in their application, or you can provide proof of adequate cover when confirming your place. StudyCare has been designed specifically to offer international students comprehensive protection and support while studying at the International Study Centre. The StudyCare Insurance Plus policy covers loss of personal possessions and health and medical insurance. Please let your admissions advisor know if you wish to purchase our StudyCare Insurance Plus. The insurance covers you until the end of your course.

When Are Your Fees Due?

Confirmation Payment

Once you have received an offer of a place at the International Study Centre, a confirmation payment is required to secure your place. 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.

Tuition Fees

The balance of tuition fees can be paid:

  • For programmes of study lasting three terms or more: After arriving at the Centre, fees are payable to us in advance at the start of the term before the term to which they relate (for example, the fees for term 3 will be payable at the beginning of term 2), or in full in advance.
  • For Pre-Masters courses: in full in advance.
