    In addition to holiday weeks where no teaching takes place, the following link will show you the upcoming UK Public Holidays. No lessons will take place on these days and the English Language Centre will be closed. There will also be one staff training day on Monday 18th March 2024, and no teaching will take place on this day.

    Please be aware that normal weekly fees apply.

    *The latest application & acceptance dates are different for students applying for a combined CAS. Please see this page for details.

In order to allow time for your application to be processed and any visa application to be completed, your application should reach us on or before the deadline for application stated in the table above.

For more information regarding the visa application process please see the UK Visas and Immigration website.

Please accept your offer by the deadline stated in the table.  This allows us time to ensure that our staffing arrangements take into account of all the students we are expecting to join us, and protects the student experience.  We cannot guarantee to be able to find a place for you on the course if you do not accept your place by the deadline.

We encourage all students to begin study on the first day of the course, but recognise that there are rare occasions when visa or travel issues mean that you cannot do this.  For every entry point, you will see a latest arrival date in the table.  We expect all students to begin their studies by 5pm Liverpool time on that date.  It will not be possible for you to make up the missed work if you arrive after that date, so we will not allow you to join the course if you miss this deadline. All online students are expected to register and attend from the first day of the course.  Late registrations will not be permitted for online courses.

Please note that if you are not able to start on the first day of the course: 

  • The amount of study and work you are required to complete remains the same and all students are required to pass the course irrespective of the point at which they commence it. 
  • The course fee must be paid in full, regardless of length of attendance and circumstances for late arrival.
