What happens next?

The chart below shows the stages in the application process, from the time you send us your application form to your arrival in the UK to begin your studies.

1. Review of application

We review your application form and supporting documents to assess your academic level and English language level.

2. Conditional offer

If it is a strong application, we send a conditional offer letter showing the conditions you still need to meet. We also send an agreement letter for you to sign and return to us.

3. Interview

We may want to interview you by Skype. We will contact you to arrange a convenient time.

6. Unconditional offer

After we have received the payment, we send a receipt and an unconditional offer to confirm your place (as long as there are places still available).

5. Pay the tuition fee

After you have met the conditions of your offer, check with us to confirm there are still places available. Then you can pay the tuition fee (at least 50% as a deposit) to confirm your place.

4. Meet the conditions

You need to meet the conditions in your offer letter, and return the completed agreement letter.

7. Details sent to University of Bath

We send your details to the University of Bath. Near the beginning of the course, the university sends you your student ID and username.

8. CAS prepared

We prepare your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) which you need to apply for your visa, and ask you to check the details. We also help to check the bank statements which you need for your visa application.

9. Apply for your visa

You can apply for your visa up to 3 months before the programme begins. Please let us know as soon as you receive your visa.

12. Useful information

We send you information for arrival such as useful contact details, maps, and the programme for the induction week.

11. Payment of balance of fees

If you have not yet paid the balance of fees, you need to pay it now, before you arrive in the UK.

10. Accommodation

We contact you to arrange your accommodation.

13. Arrival

You make your travel arrangements and let us know your arrival details. We can arrange travel from the airport to college if required.
