Overseas students are those from outside the EU/EEA and have not been a UK resident for the last 3 years. If you are under 18, you may apply to study on any full time course leading to a qualification. If you are over 18, the course for which you are applying must lead to a Level 3 qualification. You must apply for a full-time programme of study.
Application procedure for Overseas Students
We work with a range of carefully selected agents to ensure students have the best advice when applying to study at HCUC (Harrow College & Uxbridge College). If you are applying through an agent or international representative please click here to for the list of our affiliated agents.
If you wish to apply direct to the College please follow the instructions below:
- Complete all the sections of the application form or view a course online and click the Apply Now button
- Upload all supporting documents:
- Passport copy
- Evidence of previous education
- English Language qualification
- Handwritten personal statement
Check your account regularly as our international team will use it to communicate with you.
Before a conditional offer can be issued, you will be required to attend a face-to-face or Skype interview to discuss your application with our International Student Admissions Coordinator 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.
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.
You should submit the CAS statement together with a valid passport or travel document and a bank statement to the British Embassy or High Commission 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 Tier 4 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.
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.
