A STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO APPLYING TO KING EDWARD VI COLLEGE, STOURBRIDGE

 

How do I apply?

You can apply using the international application form which can be downloaded from our website. If you are interested in our college you should apply as soon as possible to allow maximum time for reflection and development of the best possible programme to suit your individual needs.

 

Step 1:

Learn about the opportunities available through the college website and various international events featuring our college.

 

Step 2:

Apply by completing the international application form available from agents or our college website. An acknowledgement will be sent once each application is received.

 

Step 3:

Academic references will be checked including IELTS scores, and applicants will be invited for a Skype interview. Please note in order to qualify for a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK you must be able to demonstrate that you are proficient at CEFR level B2, (equivalent to at least an IELTS 5.5) in each of the four sub-components of language learning (reading, writing, speaking and listening). Some of our courses require a higher level of English, please refer to our prospectus for further details.

 

Step 4:

Skype interviews will be arranged at a date and time to suit the college and the applicant. However, where a representative from King Edward’s is scheduled to visit a country in person, face to face interviews may be arranged.

 

Step 5:

Within 2 weeks of the interview all applicants will receive either an unconditional offer for a place of study or a referral to another very well respected educator. Offers will be made by email.

 

Step 6:

Successful applicants must either reject or accept the offer within 28 days. Offer acceptance must be accompanied by a deposit payment.

 

Step 7:

Confirmation that all paperwork has been completed. Visas should now be arranged and work will start to match you with a suitable home-stay family.

 

Step 8:

Assuming successful applicants achieve their predicted grades they will pay the remaining balance of fees in August. If you receive an offer but do not achieve your predicted grades your place will be subject to the discretion of the college and you might need to alter your subject choices if grades in chosen subjects are lower than expected. Any student who has significantly under-achieved compared to their predicted results will either receive a full refund less £250 administration costs or be offered a place at an alternative institution.

 

Step 9:

Following securing full visa clearance and arrival in the UK students will enrol at King Edward VI College in late August and begin studies in very early September.
