Application process

If you’re ready to experience studying in the UK, we’re ready to welcome you!

Are you applying to study under the Tier 4 immigration route? You will need to check your eligibility by using the Tier 4 of the points based system – Policy guidance.

The first stage is to choose the course you are interested in, then apply via your course page. You will then be contacted by a member of the team to submit your supporting documents.
