How to apply

Download an application form and once you have completed the form, please send it back to us at or post it to the address on the form. Don’t forget to attach the extra information listed below, including copies of the relevant pages of your passport. We will contact you to confirm if we can offer you a place. If you are made an offer we ask for £2,000 of the fee before assigning the CAS (full fees are sometimes required before a CAS can be assigned).

Along with completing the application form, you will need to include the following documentation:

  • copies of exam certificates and school reports which need be translated into English
  • copies of the pages in your passport – including your name, age, photograph and passport number
  • a copy of your visa (if applicable/available)
  • full details of any previous studies in the UK
  • copies of English language qualifications.

Once the International team has received all of your document, it will be checked and your application will start to be processed. Some courses require an interview and you will be advised at this stage if this is necessary. A CAS can only be issued once the requested fees have been cleared in the City College Plymouth finance account.

Prospective Students Visa

Please be aware that if you require a Student Visa to study in the UK we advise you to apply for your place at the College a minimum of three months prior to the course start date. This is to allow enough time for the full College application and visa application processes. If you need a Student Visa to study at the College and do not meet the UKVI concessions, you will need to provide a Secure English Language Test (SELT), which is UKVI approved, such as UKVI IELTS.

We're looking forward to welcoming you
