How to book and pay for your English course

To book your place on a UAL Language Centre English course, you will need to complete our online booking form.

Most of our courses carry a minimum English language requirement. Please check this on the respective English course pages before applying. If you are unsure of your current English level we can provide a level test.

Students under 18 need to read the information we have provided for students under 18 and their parents or guardians.

Update - Arrival information for international students from:

  • South Korea
  • Japan
  • Singapore
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • New Zealand
  • USA

Students joining the Language Centre for short-term study (less than 6 months) must not use the automated eGates when arriving in the UK. You will need to see a Border Officer on arrival to get a Short Term Study visa stamp. Please note that you will also need to keep your boarding pass or flight ticket.

If you use the eGates, you will be granted entry as a general visitor, which means you cannot study for more than 30 days. If your course is longer than 30 days you will need to leave the UK and return with the correct visa stamp.

Please read our short term study visa information if you are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland and will study English for a short period of time at UAL Language Centre.
