Difference between EU and international students

Students coming from the EEA (European Economic area which includes the European Union plus Iceland, Lichtenstein, 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.


We are here to provide support to international students, and help you apply, enrol and navigate your way through your studies at the College and your stay in London.
