Should you be admitted to the College, you must bring the originals of all these documents with you on the first day of admission. Failure to do so means that you will not be able to undergo the admission process and may therefore miss classes.

• Current and attested (with professional stamp) proof of academic and non-academic qualifications;

• A copy of your current passport (with expiration no less than six months), attested with stamp from a notary public;

• Four passport-size photographs. Important: It is a UKBA requirement that the background be either grey or white to show definition between the applicant’s face and the background;

• An original Banker’s Draft;

• A bank statement. All applicants to sign a declaration that the funds they present to meet the maintenance requirement are genuinely available for use in coming to the UK to study. This will make refusals easier on grounds of deception.
You must show that you have enough money to pay your fees and monthly living costs for at least the first year of studies (or the length of your course if it is fewer than nine months in duration). You must show that you have held the money in your personal bank account or your parent(s)’ / legal guardian(s)’ bank account for a consecutive 28 day period (this period coinciding with the date of the closing balance) and ending no more than one month before your application was made. We will use the closing balance of the document you provide as representing the level of funds available to you. The abovementioned date is also the date we will use to establish the rate of exchange for the transfer of funds from your currency to pounds sterling;

• If you have a sponsor, a statement from your sponsor verifying the availability of the funds for your studies while in the United Kingdom. The sponsor also needs to provide a photo ID and proof of his/her address;

• If relevant, a letter regarding any work experience you may have had;
