How to Apply

At Harrow College we welcome applications all year round from all over the world. When you are ready to apply, you will need to complete an application form and submit a number of documents to help support your application. Please note that if you are applying for a Higher Education course, you can also apply through the UCAS system www.ucas.com. To apply for a course, follow the 'Apply Now' button at the bottom of the course page.

Student Visa applicants must only apply for a full-time programme of study leading to a Level 3 qualification or above.

Please note that we do not offer Student Visa Sponsorship on Level 1 and Level 2 courses.

Step 2 - Conditional Offer

Before a conditional offer can be issued, you will be required to attend a face-to-face or Skype, Whatsapp or Zoom interview to discuss your application with our International Officer and/or the course tutor.

If your interview is successful, you will receive a conditional offer within 48 hours listing any outstanding evidence, which you will need to submit before an unconditional offer/CAS can be issued.

If your interview is not successful, we will write to you explaining the reasons.


Step 3 - Confirmation for Acceptance of Studies (CAS) / Unconditional offer

Once all the conditions (step 2) have been met and full payment has been received, we will send you a CAS or unconditional offer.

The CAS statement will contain your unique CAS number and list all the relevant evidence that has been used to assess your eligibility to study at Harrow College.


Step 4 - Visa application

You should submit the CAS statement and your passport together with all the evidence listed in your CAS to a UK Visa Application Centre in your country of residence when applying for your Student Visa.

Once you have received the decision about your visa, contact us immediately in order to receive further information about the College and arrange your first day.

In the event that your visa is refused, notify us immediately so that we can offer you further assistance.

Please note: As a Student Visa sponsor, Harrow College will notify the Home Office about students who do not enrol on the course once they have been sent a CAS, or those who do not regularly attend their classes.


Step 5 - Arrival preparation

To make your stay away from home as easy and enjoyable as possible, plan your trip carefully using the information available on our support page.
