If you are an EU student and aged between 16 - 18, you may be eligible for a reduced cost of tuition.

If you have Pre-Settled Status in the UK and are aged between 16 - 18, you may be eligible for free tuition. However, you will be required to pay a service of £1800 in the first year and £900 for your second year (this does not apply to short courses).

Students aged 19+ by the 31st August prior to the enrolment date will pay the same fees as local students, including exam fees, depending on current qualifications. Please enquire for details.

For all non-EU students, a deposit of £2500 will be required to secure a place at Boston College. In the event of your visa not being granted, we will make a refund of £2000 for a Student Route Visa and £2250 for a Short Term Study Visa.

Entry and Visas

Most EU International students will need a visa to be able to come to the UK to study. The type of course you are studying will determine which visa you need, but most students will require a Student Route Visa.

Boston College is licensed to sponsor students under the Student Route Points Based System.

Our Licence number is M1XM7Y0T0.

Point Based System (PBS)

The Student Route Points Based System (PBS) operated by the UK Visa and Immigration service (UKVI), requires students to apply for a CAS (Certificate of Acceptance for Studies) number through an educational institute that has been accepted on the UKVI Student Route Sponsor List.

Once you have been given your CAS number, you can apply for your student visa at the relevant embassy in your home country. A CAS number cannot be issued more than six months before the start of the course and a student visa cannot be applied for at the embassy more than three months before the start of the course.

The visa application process can take several weeks at peak times, so it is important that you apply within the correct time limits.

Useful Contacts

For information on how to apply for your visa, please contact the Visa Office at the British Consulate in your country.

We recommend that you visit the UKVI website for up to date information on how to meet the Student Route PBS requirements and what to expect when you apply for your visa. You may also find the UKCISA website helpful.

Offer of Your Place

Once you have completed a successful application, Boston College will send you a conditional offer letter which will explain how to accept the place, as well as the information that will be needed to allow the College to apply for your CAS number.

A tuition and accommodation deposit will be required before the CAS number can be applied for. Your offer letter will explain how to make your deposit payments.
