At the Condé Nast College, we welcome international students from all corners of the globe. Our student body is made up of a myriad of nationalities making for a wonderfully blended environment. Here, you will find further information about visas for studying in the UK as well as essential information for international students in London.
Visas for studying in the UK
Whether you are yet to arrive or are already in the UK, you can find all the visa information you need to know below. Most non-EU/EEA Nationals starting a degree course will require a Tier 4 (general) visa in order to study in the UK. The type of visa you will need, and the process for applying for it will differ depending on the type of course you plan to study, the length of your course and several other criteria. You can get more information on how to apply for your visa and which visa to apply for on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.
for BA (Hons) Fashion Communication and the Vogue Fashion Foundation Diploma
International students without a UK/EEA passport will require a Tier 4 (general) student visa in order to study on these courses. You can apply for this visa only after you have been accepted and issued with a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number by the College and no more than three months before the start of the course or the date of travel. This is a requirement of the UK government. Once you have been accepted, the College will send you all the required information to help guide you through the visa application process.
Disclaimer: While the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design provides directional links and support to prospective students requiring study visas, ultimately it is each student’s personal responsibility to ensure that they have met all of their visa requirements, and the College does not take any responsibility for non-issued visas.
for Vogue Fashion Certificate, Vogue Intensive Summer Course, One Week Courses and the Vogue Teen Weekend
International students without a UK/EEA passport may be required to apply for the short-term study visa. Consult the Gov.uk website to confirm this in relation to your nationality. A list of the required documents and other important information can also be found on the site. To apply for the short-term visa, you will need an unconditional acceptance letter from the College confirming your enrolment on the course. The original letter will only be issued once the full payment of the tuition fee has been received and cleared. Please note that photocopies and scans are not accepted.
