West London's College has a proud tradition of welcoming international students from around the world. The college, one of the largest Further Education Colleges in the country, is in the heart of London with excellent transport links to all corners of the capital.

Our English as a Foreign Language provision is fully accredited by the British Council for English Language Teaching, with flexible start dates allowing students to start throughout the year including the summer months.



Students coming from the EEA (European Economic area which includes the European Union plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway) and Switzerland are not considered international, for the purpose of fees, and enjoy the same benefits as a UK national.

If you are a national of a country that does not fall into the above categories you will be considered an international student, for the purpose of fees, and subject to the UK’s immigration regulations.

This is the pdfrefund policy for all students who have been enrolled via applications through the International Office.
