Will my place of residence be provided by the school?
There are many educational institutions that provide hostels for an additional cost over and above tuition fees. Alternatively, if preferred, we can help you to rent an apartment or room. The average cost of living varies from upwards of £100 per week.
Can I go to university after school with a basic general education?
No. School education is not recognized by universities in the UK because the prerequisites for admission are A-level exams or equivalent (usually at A and B levels). To enroll on a course in a University institution, you are required to finish one of the preparatory courses (A-level, Foundation or BTEC).
Is a scholarship paid?
There are no formal scholarship awards at English universities, but scholarships or grants can be awarded to students who have distinguished themselves during their studies, at the discretion of the school.
