Apply Now

All Activate English applications are made through our online application form.

You will need to fill your personal details, and add a copy of your passport, and any language certificate you might have (don’t worry if you do not have any certificates; you can ask us to send you an online test by ticking a box on the application form).  If you are a sponsored student you will need to upload a copy of your financial guarantee.

You will also select the dates you wish to study.  You can start on any Monday and finish on any Friday a minimum of two weeks later within our study blocks.  Please see Dates, Fees & Entry Requirements for more information.

Before you apply, we strongly encourage you to read our terms and conditions.  This contains information about payment, cancellation, and our commitment to you. 

What Happens After You Have Submitted Your Application

Once you have completed the steps shown above, you will receive an automatic email from us.  This is your confirmation of application receipt.  We will then email you again if we need any additional information, or if you have requested one of our online English language tests.

We will aim to process your application within 3-5 working days from the date we receive it.

If you are a self-funded student you will also be asked to pay two weeks tuition before you arrive.  Your application cannot be processed until this payment is received.  You can pay this using a debit or credit card.  If you have an enquiry regarding payment, please contact the Activate Admissions Team directly before applying on acteng@liverpool.ac.uk.

You will receive your offer, which we will send to your email address.  You should then formally accept your offer by email.  We will then send you all the information you need for the start of the course.
