How to apply

Early application is essential for applicants requiring visas.

Complete the course application form and return it to us at least 40 working days before the start of the course with:

a) 1 passport photograph
b) copy of passport (photo page) plus a copy of visa if relevant
c) copies of educational qualifications/certificates
d) copies of English Language qualifications/certificates

When we receive your application we will check your eligibility to join the course.  If eligible, you will be required to have an interview and complete a writing task.  Following this, if you are accepted onto the course we will send you an offer conditional on the payment of a deposit of £500 (or fees in full/on provision of a sponsorship letter). When we have received this we will send you a Letter of Acceptance and a Statement of Account showing the fees you have already paid and the balance to be paid. The balance of all fees for the course must be paid at least 20 working days (Mon-Fri) before the start date of the course. For any late applications, when the offer of a place on the course is made within the 20 days prior to the start date of the course, full fees must be paid. Your place cannot be guaranteed if you do not pay all your course fees/provide a sponsorship letter in advance. 
The Letter of Acceptance can be used for visa purposes.

Enquiries for 2018-19 CertTESOL applications should be directed to the Admissions team on +44 (0)161 306 3391.
