Studying abroad anywhere is a big investment, and it’s not just your tuition fees you need to consider. You’ll need to think about and prepare for things like accommodation costs, course learning material costs and living expenses too.
The information here aims to help you understand the costs of studying abroad a bit better.
* This includes a £250 deposit for your accommodation. This will be returned to you in full when you move out of your room, on the condition that you leave it in good condition with no damage, and that there are no accommodation penalty charges to pay.

Course learning materials

If you sign up for Kaplan Living Special Support, you’ll benefit from Wellbeing Coordinators in your residence who will be available to help you settle into life in the UK, assist with any emergencies you may have, and offer an additional layer of pastoral care to ensure that you can live and study safely. This fantastic service is included in the accommodation package for all students under the age of 18, covered by an additional £300 fee. It is also optional for students over the age of 18 who would like a little extra support during their stay with us.
You will need at least £1,023 for each month of your pathway course, in keeping with UKVI regulations. Contact us for more information.
You’ll be charged an administration fee to cover administration costs related to your application. This is payable at the same time as your tuition deposit if you accept an offer to study at the College.
We offer EduTravel to all students. This is a comprehensive insurance policy for studying abroad. It is offered in partnership with Endsleigh, a leading insurance provider. The price will depend on the length of policy you need — the exact cost will be confirmed in the invoice that accompanies your offer letter. If you start your pathway course online from home, we will adjust the length of your insurance policy to fit any part of your course that you study in the UK.
You will have the option to undertake paid work during your studies at the College, if you wish: you can work for up to 10 hours per week during term time and full time during holidays. You cannot undertake any type of self-employment or business activity.
