To apply for an International course at Sunderland College just follow these simple steps:

1. Application

Complete a copy of the International Application Form (please contact us if you would like a copy emailed or sent to you through the post) and return to us, enclosing copies of your certificates and passport either by email, fax or post (email preferred).

If you are applying through one of our approved agents they will assist you with this.

2. Offer of a place

We will consider your application carefully and if you are successful we will send you a letter offering you a place on your chosen course, this is called a Conditional Offer.

3. Acceptance

If you would like to accept our offer, please return a signed copy of the Acceptance Form and any other documentation that will be included with your Conditional Offer letter and pay the deposit.

You can pay by credit card, bank transfer, bank draft or cheque. Guidance on tuition fee payment is included on our Tuition Fees leaflet. Once we have received your deposit and forms, we will send you a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) letter.

You will need your CAS letter if you are required to apply for a student visa to study in the UK.
