Ready to Apply?

To apply for any of our courses you will need to complete an application form. You will need to include the following documentation. Please note that we cannot process your application until we have all of these documents.

  • Copies of exam certificates and school reports
    These should be translated into English. Please be aware that a conditional offer of a place will not meet the UK Border Agency’s student visa criteria. If you are awaiting results Exeter College will not be able to make you an unconditional offer until we have seen confirmation of those examination results.
  • Copies of the pages in your passport including your name, age, photograph and passport number.
  • A copy of your visa (if applicable/available)
  • Results from an English language assessment
    If English is not your first language you will need to provide proof of your English level. You will need to be working at a minimum of UKVI IELTS 5.5 or equivalent to study at Exeter College, or have UKVI IELTS 6.0 for our Higher Education programmes.

Next Steps

Once we have received your application form and checked your documents, we will invite you to an interview. If you are not living in the UK, we can arrange this to take place over the telephone or Skype.

After your interview, if successful, you will receive a letter of offer for a place at college. All tuition fees due must be paid in full prior to commencement of studies. For Tier 4 students we require full course fee payment before we can issue your CAS. You can pay by credit/debit card, bank transfer, cash or cheque.

Prospective Tier 4 Students

Please be aware that if you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK we advise you to apply for your place at college a minimum of 3 months prior to the course start date. This is to allow enough time for the full college application and visa application processes.
