If you are an international student on a student visa and fail to complete the enrolment process or subsequently wish to change mode of attendance or withdraw, you should seek advice from an international student adviser as this will change your immigration status. You should be aware that the Academy may be required to report any changes to the immigration authorities.

Why do I need to enrol?

All students must complete an online enrolment to become a student of the Academy. Once your enrolment has been fully completed, you will gain access to the Academy's services such as study facilities, careers advice, Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) etc.;

How do I enrol?

You can enrol to our courses by filling out the enrolment form and the Academy will contact you regarding the enrolment process. 

If you are an international student, we will interview you over skype and you will need to provide:

  • a copy of your passport – to ensure we are charging the correct fees and  that you receive your Certificate of Acceptance to Study (CAS) number for a UK visa

Face-to-face enrolment

Most students will complete their enrolment at a face-to-face event at the Academy. However, this is not always appropriate for international students.

What happens at face-to-face enrolment?

We will confirm your details and will ask to show proof of your identity. We can then discuss how you will pay your tuition fees.
If you have a disability and require special assistance, please let one of the enrolment staff know before arrival.

When will I get my timetable?

The faculties will issue timetables as soon as they are available. You will receive an email to let you know where to go and how to access it as soon as possible.
