The cost of your course will depend on your fee status, which is normally determined by your residency. If you are ordinarily resident in the EU or the EEA you will usually have 'home' student status. See the website for details.
Residency does not necessarily correlate with nationality: if you are a Bolivian but have been given Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), shown as a stamp in your passport, then the College will regard you as a 'home' student. If you require a visa to remain in the EU then the College will regard you as an 'international' student and will assign you a different fee status. This page gives some details of non-EU/overseas fees.
The prices quoted are in GBP, British pounds;(course fees are provided as a guide only
and you may be required to pay additional exam and resource fees depending on
your course). Course fees include the College ID card fee. All fees per year and exclusive of exams and resources unless otherwise stated.

If you are an overseas student applying for English Language courses then you should pay for your tuition when you apply for your course.
The whole tuition fee is payable in advance for International students. We will accept the following methods of payment:
By PTS: the most effective method of payment
is through the Pay to Study (PTS) Service. The PTS System is a free service – no
bank charges will be added to your transfers – offering significantly beneficial
exchange rates. By using this system you are able to pay in your home currency
at your choice of local bank, so there is no need to buy Sterling from your bank
prior to transferring. All payments can be tracked by you, the student, 24 hours
a day online. Therefore you will not need to contact the college to confirm
whether or not we have received payment. All visa authorities now accept PTS
receipts as a means of evidencing payment of tuition fees - You will need to add
the confirmation of payment receipt to your visa application.
Using the PTS payment method is quick and simple. You can make your payment by clicking
Should you have any queries about your PTS payment or
the PTS service please do not hesitate to contact the PTS Customer Care Team at

Westminster Kingsway College has a 'no refunds' policy, however, refunds may be considered if any of the following circumstances exist:
- The College terminates a course, which has already started
- The College is not able to provide an advertised course
- The College changes the time or location of a course from that advertised
- The College cancels an examination
- The College recommends a student transfers to a course with a lower fee
- The College has overcharged a student or assessed their fees incorrectly
- Medical conditions, certified by appropriate medical professionals, resulting in the student having to leave the College completely
If after enrolment you decide to withdraw from your course for any other reason you will not get a refund. If we have agreed for you to pay in instalments then you must pay all unpaid instalments immediately.
If you have paid a deposit for your course fees prior to obtaining a visa then if your visa is refused you will be refunded your deposit minus a £100 administration fee if the visa is refused.
Refund applications will only be considered if received on a correctly completed form, available from all Admissions and Advice offices or Finance Office. Where refunds are declined the College may issue a credit note or voucher for another College course, as an alternative.
Where the College terminates a course, which has already started, you will receive a full refund of all amounts paid, however, all other refunds and credit notes will be subject to deductions for classes already attended, the examination fee where the College has already registered your entry, unpaid student ID card fees, unpaid fees in respect of other programmes of study and an administration fee of £10.
The College has a no refunds policy and only in exceptional circumstances will refunds be given. A student who applies for and obtains an acceptance letter for a particular course is expected to complete the course except in these special circumstances; students are expected to attend at least 80% of classes. If a student has poor attendance or stops attending a course before the end date specified on the acceptance letter, the college has a responsibility to inform the Home Office. The College will also be unable to assist the student to renew their student visa.
