Please see here for important information about IELTS tests.
We will confirm whether you meet the entry requirements for the pre-sessional programme. If you do, we will ask you to confirm that you wish to apply for the pre-sessional course by asking you to pay a £200 (non-refundable) deposit.
The deposit (and course fees) must be paid in £ sterling. The deposit is required to secure a place on the course and to cover administration costs.
*This deposit is non-refundable unless you cancel within 14 days of payment.
We will notify the Loughborough University Admissions Team to produce a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
The University Admissions Team will email your CAS to you. You will need your CAS to apply for a visa. Please ensure you have completed and returned all documentation requested by the relevant admissions team.
We strongly recommend you secure your visa before you make payment for tuition fees or accommodation. Please note that you will only be able to start your pre-sessional course with us if you hold a suitable visa. If you currently hold a Tier 4 student visa for another sponsor, you will not be allowed to register on the pre-sessional course until you can prove that you have made an application for a new Tier 4 student visa using a CAS issued by Loughborough University. Further information is available on the Student Advice and Support Service website.
You can pay online from 4 weeks prior to your arrival. Please ensure you have paid the remaining balance 2 weeks before the start of your course to minimise waiting time at registration. Pay online now »
Course registration takes place on the first day of the course.
