Please note:

Students are required to make their own arrangements for travel to the UK. 

Students will be self catering and will need to purchase their own food, they will share a kitchen and living area (with utensils supplied) in which 4-7 students can relax, cook and eat.

Students will need to apply for visas early on, we recommend that you apply for a short-term study visa in order to attend.

If you do need a visa please apply up to 3 months before the date of travel to avoid disappointment.
