When Do I Pay?

You must pay the tuition fee deposit, plus any accommodation costs, before arriving to start your course. This amount will be shown in your offer letter.


You can pay the remainder of the fees when you arrive and enrol on your course.


If you are studying on a course which is 6 months or longer, and which costs £300 or more, and if you have a UK bank account, you can pay the remainder of your fees in three equal instalments. The first payment is due when you enrol, and the other two instalments must be paid each month for the following two months. A standing order will be set up with your UK bank so the payments are made directly to Bath College.


All course fees must be paid by 8 weeks before the end date of the course.


NOTE: The fees do not include course books or any additional costs relating to the  course, such as course materials, trips, accommodation and living costs.

Refund of Fees

Refunds of course fees, in whole or part, will only be considered in truly exceptional cases, when you will need to provide appropriate supporting original documentation (e.g. a medical certificate). No refunds are made in any other circumstances. The College reserves the right to deduct an administration fee of up to £25 from any refund.


If your visa application is refused, you will need to send the original visa refusal document to the College so that a refund can be processed. The College will deduct an administration fee of £200.
