Important information for international students

In line with UK Border Agency (immigration) rules, we are not able to support overseas’ student visa applications for further education courses. Therefore, unless you are an EU citizen (hold an EU passport) or have ‘settled’ status in the UK such as Indefinite Leave to Enter or Remain in your passport, we will be unable to process your application. In practical terms, this means that if you need a student visa to come to the UK to take this course, we cannot accept your application. If you do have ‘settled’ status and do not require a student visa to come to or stay in the UK, we can accept your application but will require you to bring your passport and any relevant immigration documents as evidence of your right to stay in the UK with you to your college interview. Please note that if you hold non-UK qualifications, you will need to ensure that these are at least equivalent to the UK qualifications required.

Higher education courses are delivered in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University. Please see Anglia Ruskin’s website for entry requirements for international students.
