Keeping you on track for academic success

Apply and confirm with confidence with our flexible study options:

Study on Campus: Travel to the UK to study on campus.

Study Online - Get your Visa - Transfer to On Campus*: Study your program online, and transfer to an on-campus program in Jan or Mar/April 2022. Our centers will be ready to welcome you and support you to ensure that you settle in quickly and can focus on your studies. 

Study Online: Start and finish your studies online, if you are unable to safely travel to the UK. 

*  Transferring to an on-campus program is subject to meeting any necessary visa requirements as well as attendance and performance criteria requirements of your chosen program of study.

What is the last date of arrival for Autumn 2021 on-campus programs?

The last date of arrival for on-campus programs (pathway and A Level) commencing Autumn 2021 will be no later than 5 weeks from the published course start date. We expect students to arrive for the published course start date, but we understand that sometimes due to unexpected delays this may not be possible. If you're arriving after the published course start date, you'll be required to inform INTO of your delayed arrival. You'll be required to engage remotely by the latest published start date at the very latest, though, and to be fully engaged with remote learning until you arrive on campus and start your learning in person.

More information about your study options

Important information about studying with INTO

If you start online, you’ll be able to transfer to the on-campus program provided you meet the relevant entry requirements and are able to secure the correct visa. For online pathway programs starting in Autumn 2021, transfers will be possible for start dates in January 2022 and for start dates in March/April 2022. Transfers will be subject to attendance and progress with the online program and meeting the SELT requirements for any course below degree-level, unless you meet an exemption to these requirements.

This year, we understand that there may be circumstances outside of your control that prevent you from travelling to start your studies in the UK when you expected to. In these situations, if you have booked INTO managed accommodation and paid a deposit, we will credit your account with any monies paid and ensure a room* is held for the start of your next term, whilst you start your studies online. If you have booked accommodation with a third party or alternative provider you will be subject to their Terms and Conditions.

Six weeks prior to the start of your 2nd term we will contact you to confirm that you are still planning to travel to the UK and require the accommodation we’re holding for you. If you no longer require your accommodation, normal cancellation charges will apply. See our Terms and Conditions for full details.

If you decide to cancel your place on a program before the start date, you will receive a full refund of any deposits and fees (including for tuition and accommodation) subject to our Terms and Conditions.

If you wish to defer your scheduled start date to a future intake, you can do so. We’ll simply transfer all tuition, accommodation fees and deposits paid to date for that future intake.

  • Room allocation will be subject to availability.

An alternative to a Secure English Language Test will be acceptable for an online program. If you transfer to the on-campus program, you must ensure you meet student visa requirements and therefore, may need an approved SELT to apply for your Student visa.
