Travel restrictions: Find out about digital learning and how you can apply with confidence.

Apply with confidence

You don’t have to put your dreams on hold. You can begin your studies now, and plan for your future.

Our flexible admissions and start dates, and digital learning solutions, mean that you can apply with confidence and begin your studies online from the comfort of your home, safe in the knowledge that we’re here to support you every step of the way.

That same flexibility extends to transferring to on-campus or in-college study. When face-to-face teaching resumes, you can transfer to your study destination at a time that’s right for you.

We are continuing to welcome students onto our Summer and Autumn intakes and beyond, to ensure that everyone can fulfil their long-term academic ambitions.

Flexible intakes + digital learning = apply with confidence and follow your dreams

Digital learning expertise

One of the key reasons you can apply with confidence is the strength of our digital learning solutions. If you need to start your studies online, you can feel secure knowing you’ll get the same excellent level of support, and the same quality of teaching and course materials.

Our knowledge and experience of digital learning, and the excellent reputation that our partner universities, such as Arizona State University, have for delivering high-quality online education means that you’ll be in safe hands.

14 years of digital experience in higher education

If you’re taking a pathway course, you can be sure that your digital learning programme will be fully recognised for entry by our university partners, so you can stay on track and follow your path to your degree.

And, when it is possible to return to on-campus or in-college study, you’ll also have flexibility with when and how you transfer from online to face-to-face learning.

Students applying to UK universities

We’re committed to helping students around the world continue to gain access to the fantastic education the UK has to offer. Our flexible intakes and application policy, as well as our digital learning solutions, are all in place to help you plan your future.

  • Secure your place without a CAS or visa

    By accepting your offer and paying your deposit you will have the reassurance of having secured a place on your chosen study programme. This will enable you to progress to your degree in 2021.

    You don’t need a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) to start your studies online. In addition, we are now accepting alternative English language test results to UKVI IELTS, as well as alternatives to full academic transcripts, as part of applications. This should all help you secure your place with us.

    If you would like to discuss an application with us, please just contact us and we can take you through your options.

  • Benefit from flexible intakes

    If you have paid a deposit for a study programme that starts in Summer or Autumn 2020 and you are unable to enrol in college at the start of term (for example due to travel restrictions or the closure of a visa centre), you will then be able to study your course online.

    If we are unable to deliver face-to-face teaching at the start of term, we will still be able to deliver digital lessons to students who are unable to travel from their home country. This is a fantastic option for you to ensure you start your programme on time, as planned. In fact, all of our current students are now successfully studying their programmes online.

    Once restrictions are lifted, students would then be able to travel to the UK at an appropriate time in the academic term to enrol in college and commence face-to-face lessons.

  • Get accommodation when you need it

    When the time comes to return to face-to-face study in our colleges, and at our partner universities, we’ll help you find the excellent accommodation you’ll need at your study destination.

    You can find answers to some questions you might have regarding accommodation on this page.
