Apply for a Place

Students who wish to apply for a place at EIC follow the same admissions process as national students, this process can be online or in-person. 

When applying for a place, you will be asked to supply these documents: 

  • IELTS Certificate (or equivalent)
  • Copies of examinations/result slips
  • Most recent school report/academic reference
  • Photocopy of passport
  • Two passport-sized photos
  • UCAS Reference (if applicable)
  • Any other necessary supporting documents/qualifications

Interview and Assessment

Once we have had an inital interview and received accompanying documentation, the student will be provided with a link to sit an academic assessment test. Provided the academic assessment is successful, the student will then be invited to a second interview with the Principal either in person or online. In the interview, the students and parents will be able to receive advice on the recommended programme for the student to ensure the College tailors their education according to their academic goals and ambitions.

Offer of a Place

An offer at EIC is based on a successful interview with the Principal and satisfactory academic records and assessment test. Following the interview, the Principal will evaluate this, and issue an offer letter within one week of attending the interview, where the recommended programme created for the student will be outlined. Students will have three weeks to formally accept the offer. If a visa is required the offer of a place is conditional on being granted a visa to study in the UK.

Enrolment to the College

Once the College has received acceptance of offer and requested documents and fees, a confirmation letter will be sent electronically or by courier/postal services, together with relevant information for enrolment.

Students will be enrolled into the College once these fees have been paid:

  • Enrolment fee (£300)
  • Book and resource fee (£450)
  • Please note, the full first tuition fee instalment must be paid before the student joins the College

Once the above has been submitted the student will be enrolled into the College, and a letter confirming receipt of the above will be issued confirming the student’s place at the College. A CAS (confirmation of acceptance of study) letter will be issued to students who require a visa to join the College, along with information on how to proceed with the visa application. International students' date of enrolment will be the date of issue of the student visa.

Please ensure our enrolment terms and conditions are read and understood before accepting the offer of a place at the College.
