Support for under 18s

Before the Centre accepts a student who is under 18 years of age, their parent or guardian must sign a consent form authorising nominated staff to act in loco parentis (on behalf of the parent/carer) in the case of an emergency, and a medical information form. Relevant forms will be sent to parents and the student with the confirmation documents. No student will be accepted without these forms having been completed and returned to us before the start of the course.

We recommend that parents appoint a UK-based guardian for international students under 18. If parents are making their own arrangements for either guardianship services or a friend or family member in the UK to act as guardian to the student, evidence of these arrangements must be supplied before the course starts.

Support for students with disabilities

A confidential service for students is available offering advice and information on disabilities such as dyslexia, sensory impairments, and mobility and medical conditions.
