Your College fees are for tuition, welfare, most activities and accommodation only. If you have catered accommodation your meals will also be included in the costs.

Additional finances

We recommend you open a UK bank account which we can help you with. You will need additional finances to pay for the ongoing costs of your education. This includes expenses such as trips and books.

For full details please visit: Admissions

Float account

You may either cover additional costs from your personal finances, or through a ‘float account’ managed by the College. You or your parents can fund this account as necessary, and the College can then give you an agreed amount of pocket money each week. A float account is managed by the College. It’s designed to help students look after their money, and can also be used to help cover College expenses.
