How to Apply

Information for international students about the application process and what to expect.


Apply online via our website. We will ask all non-UK nationals to provide further information for example:

  • A copy of your full passport;
  • Copies of your qualifications;
  • Your IELTS test score results;
  • Your UK visa, if you already have one; and
  • Proof you have sufficient funds to study in the UK.

All students identified as needing a Student Visa will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of 15% of the annual course fee. Fees for students assessed as international fee payers are generally £500 per year more than the full-time home student fee. The deposit must be paid before interviews can take place.


You will be interviewed by a member of Nescot staff via Skype, teams or zoom and also by our Director of International Studies.


If your application is successful, Nescot will contact you to offer you a place. If for any reason your application is not successful you are welcome to contact the college to seek advice.

Accepting your place and paying your fees

Once you have accepted your place at Nescot, you must pay the remaining course fees in full. You will also need to show how you are going to finance living in the UK. A Certificate of Acceptance of Studies will be issued if required.

You must inform the college of your visa status. You will need to send the college a copy of your visa before you make arrangements to arrive at the college. You will not be able to enrol until we have received your visa.

Deposits for course fees are non-refundable.
