At Amity College, we offer our students comprehensive support during their stay in London. Our office staff speaks several languages and will always be pleased to give assistance on visa applications, accommodation, airport transfer, social activities and other aspects of student life in the UK.

Students who require a visa to enter the UK to study must attend a daytime course of at least 15 hours instruction per week, prove that they are able to accommodate themselves and sustain themselves financially during their stay

Once we receive the completed application form together with the payment of all requested fees for tuition, accommodation (optional) and registration, we will send the student a 'Certificate of Enrolment' to be presented to the British Authorities.

18+ Student Oyster photocards are available to students who are aged 18 and over, and are attending a full-time course (and in certain circumstances a part-time course) at universities, colleges and schools registered on the TfL 18+ Student Oyster photocard scheme.

Part-time work opportunities

We recognize that many of our students will want to do some part-time work while studying at the college. However the resent UKBA legislation has clearly stated that international students are not entitled to work neither up to 10 hours a week during the term, nor full-time during vacations (please refer to current regulations as it depends on the policies of Home Office).

 

 

Social programmes

Students are encouraged to set up social groups and join together to create shared experiences. The College regularly arranges tours to attractions and historic monuments for interested students.

 


Initial Assessment Process

When you first start on your journey to a qualification or improving your skills and knowledge we will initially carry out an assessment. This will tell us if you need any additional support with your course, special access to the premises, assistance with using a computer because of a disability, or even a little more time than usually required. This assessment will be confidential.
