Application and payment deadlines

We offer frequent intakes throughout the year, so there is no set deadline by which you need to apply or send us your deposit. We recommend, however, that you apply at least a few months before your preferred start date, so that you have enough time to apply for your visa, reserve your accommodation and get ready for your trip.

If you would like more information about when to apply or send us your first payment, please contact one of our friendly advisers, who will be happy to help.


We are proud to offer partial tuition scholarships to some of our best-performing students.
