Having considered this, you should send in your acceptance, together with the deposit. We will send you a registration letter indicating the next two start dates of your course. You may choose to start on either date.
The College does not offer accommodation to students. We recognise that new entrants to London or the UK may require short-term accommodation while making arrangements for longer-term accommodation.
This arrangement is not proposed as a long-term solution to a student’s need for accommodation and our students find their own accommodation or make arrangements with other students.
Please note that the College does not provide an airport pick-up service (for information on travelling in London (including the London Airports) please refer to travel guidance on the Transport For London website www.tfl.gov.uk
Those of you who are already studying for a professional qualification here need only to complete the application form quoting your registration number with your professional body. Return the complete form together with the appropriate deposit. We will then immediately send you a registration letter.
For an overseas student to study in the UK, it is necessary to obtain a student visa from the UK Visas and Immigration.
|Direct Entry & Scholarships
For students who are not qualified for direct entry to a degree, KCB offers Pearson BTEC Level 4 HNC Diploma in Business which, on successful completion, will guarantee entry to the Degree courses in the following year. Also KCB is committed to equal opportunities in higher education and so operates a scholarship scheme for overseas students based on academic ability and financial need. All overseas students are entitled to apply for scholarship under this scheme.
|Applications for all full-time undergraduate programmes should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). If you wish to begin studying full-time in February, you should apply directly to the College.
UCAS applications can be made by completing the online application form at www.ucas.com. Applications open in early September, and the deadline is 15th of January by 18:00 (UK time).
You will need to provide information about yourself, including a personal statement where you talk about your interest in the subject you are applying for. You will also need a reference from a teacher or advisor. These are all submitted through an online form on the UCAS website.
|The application process for international students is exactly the same as it is for UK students, therefore please see the How to apply section of the website.
Whilst the application process is the same, we recognise that there a number of additional elements international students will need to consider when applying to KCB, including English language requirements, visa and immigration information as well as interview arrangements for international candidates.
Visa Application Procedure
To apply for a ‘Tier 4 (General) Student visa, applicants will need:
1. A “Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies” (CAS) certificate from the College to show they have been accepted on a course and have either paid a deposit or full fees. It is better for the student to pay the whole fee or a large proportion in advance, if possible, as this will provide evidence that the student is committed and able to study the course.
2. Evidence of a Financial Status sufficient to enable the student to pay both the tuition fees and living expenses for the period of stay in the UK. The UK Government is concerned that students will be unable to support themselves and might have to rely on public funds or work illegally. The evidence required will depend on whether the student is sponsored by the Government or a firm or whether they are self or parent sponsored; i.e., bank statements, letters, etc.
All students who apply for visas must read the relevant information provided by UK Visa and Immigration as follows:
The Tier 4 Guidance provides information on which documents a student will need to submit with their visa application.
Please note that the College does not guarantee to offer sponsorship for visa application purposes to all applicants who receive an offer; all applications will be judged separately to determine whether the applicant is eligible for sponsorship as a visa applicant. Such applicants will be required to provide all prior immigration history, all educational history in the UK, and satisfy the requirements of the Compliance Department.
