International

City of Westminster College welcomes international students. We have a diverse, multi-cultural student and staff community of which we are very proud. We offer high quality teaching and learning across both our campuses. Our College is located in central London (zone 1) with easy access to transport links. Applications are invited from November, and enrolment onto most courses is in August/September of the following year.

As a College of Further Education, most of our courses are pre-University level. Our A-levels, Access to H.E. Diplomas and Level 3 vocational courses will prepare you for entry to a UK University. We also offer a range of Higher Education courses at Levels 4 and 5 and an International Foundation Year which is primarily English with Business.

If you want to talk to us about our course offer, you can contact our Course Information Team via telephone +44 (0)20 7258 2721 or write to us by email at customer.services@cwc.ac.uk
If you require further information 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. 

We should be able to offer you a place on a full-time accredited course after first establishing the following: 
•Your academic ability to follow the course you have applied for
•Credible reasons for you choosing the course/level of study and choice of college 
•Previous academic qualification achievement
•Availability to attend an interview and assessment either face to face or online 
•Ability to pay your fees and to maintain yourself financially whilst studying in the UK 
•Proof of identity including a copy of your current and valid passport 
•English Language proficiency with an IELTS score of at least 5.0 and the ability to speak English, which we will determine at your interview

The College does not have facilities to host students in-house, although we can provide information on accommodation in home stay or student residences through accredited agencies. For help with finding accommodation, or if you have any questions about studying with us, please email customer.services@cwc.ac.uk

Please note: When you apply for your Tier 4 visa, you may be required to attend an interview with the Home Office (UKBA) officers, either as part of your visa application or when you arrive in the UK. 

If you are required to attend an interview and you cannot show at that interview that your English language ability is at the required standard, the Home Office may refuse your application or refuse to let you enter the UK. If you are a national of a majority English-speaking country you may be exempt from meeting this criteria

All international (Tier 4) applicants will have to provide the above information at the application stage. Following receipt of your application we will write to you to confirm whether you have met the initial requirements for studying your chosen course. 

Once we give you an offer, you can then apply for a Student Visa under Tier 4 category to enable you to study for the duration of your course. We will write to you to confirm this, which will then enable you to apply for your Tier 4 visa.
