International student fees

In order to pay the home fees, you will need to have been:

  • ordinarily resident in the UK or European Economic Area (EEA) for three years preceding the start of your course
  • AND be a UK/EEA citizen or have right of abode in the UK.  

If you answer no to either of the two statements, we will need to charge you our higher international fee for any courses subsidised by the UK Government - this is because the subsidies are for UK/EEA students only.  

For courses in the 'English, maths and ESOL' programme area, with the exception of ESOL courses, the cost for international students is £10 per hour.

Please note that we will require a UK residential address to enrol you onto our courses and that we are unable to validate student visa applications.
