We positively welcome international students and are conveniently located in central London, with easy access to transport hubs. We have a diverse multicultural student community and we offer excellent teaching and learning at our flagship Paddington Green and nearby Queens Park Campuses.
Enrolment onto most courses is in August/September and applications are made from the previous January onwards.
We are a College of Further Education and most of our courses are pre-university level. Our AS/A2 Levels, Access to Higher Education Diploma and BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma courses prepare you for entry to a British university.
However, we also offer a BSc in Healthcare Science with 4 specialist pathways and a Foundation Degree in Professional Photography. In addition, we offer a range of Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) in the following programme areas: Business, Computing, Applied Sciences (Biology), Sport and Sport Science, Travel and Tourism and Music Production. In the next academic year (2013/14) we will be offering HNDs in Public Services and Vehicle Operations Management.
If you need to know more about the British education system and the opportunities it offers, as a first step we suggest that you contact the British Council or the British High Commission in your home country.
The College will be unable to offer you a place on a full-time accredited course without first seeing you for a test and a course interview. We will advise you on the course and entry requirements once we receive your application.
Please note: prospective international students should apply for an entry clearance visa as a prospective student to gain entry to the United Kingdom. A person wishing to undertake studies in the UK and who meets the requirements of Tier 4 Visa, must obtain entry clearance as a prospective student before arriving in the UK. Prospective student entry clearance is generally granted for up to six months, you can apply for this visa if you are invited to attend an interview. If accepted onto a course you are then eligible to apply for a full student visa for the duration of your course.
Further information and guidance regarding international student visas can be obtained from the UK Border Agency website at www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk or at the UK Council website for International Students (UKCISA) www.ukcisa.org.uk.
