University success starts with excellent guidance. Each of our colleges offers tailored support before and during the application process:

Beyond education, our service includes practical help with VISAs, social programmes to help you make friends and 24/7 care through House Parents and on site Nurses.
After you have completed your enrolment, we provide you with everything you need to prepare for your new life in the UK. Our Pre Arrival information pack contains everything you need to know before joining us:
Our students attend a programme over a number of days in the week before lessons begin to tour the College, meet key staff members, formally enrol and receive their timetables.
You will meet your personal tutor weekly. He or she will monitor your academic progress and attendance, as well as deal with any welfare issues.
We monitor attendance through registration at the start of every lesson. We are totally focused on ensuring you have a responsive, supportive environment in which to learn.
We supply parents with regular reports on areas such as general achievement, attitude and any concerns. We encourage parents to maintain close contact with personal tutors and our pastoral team to discuss any aspect of their child’s progress with us. We also communicate by email or text with parents regarding urgent matters, such as unexpected absence or illness.
