The above mentioned international student fees cover the tuition fee only and do not cover accommodation charges or living costs. All international undergraduate tuition fees are paid annually for the duration of the course and remain the same throughout the degree programme.
You can pay your fees through PaytoStudy This online system makes it easier and cheaper for you to pay your student fees and accommodation. At Wrexham Glyndwr University, we know that our international students often get caught out by annoying transfer fees when paying their tuition fees. We don't think that's fair, so we've teamed up with PaytoStudy to help you pay your fees without wasting precious funds on additional fees or charges.
Applying for a Visa
If you are an EEA (European Economic Area) or Swiss national then you do not need permission to enter the UK or to study here.
If you are from any other country you will require a visa in order to study at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
To study in the UK each international student must have a valid visa – a special permission from the UK government which allows you to come to (or remain in) the UK to study.
You can check if you require a visa on the UK Home Office website
There are two types of visa for studying in the UK:
- Short-term student visa
- Tier 4 student visa
If you are coming to the UK to study part-time, or for a maximum of six months (or 11 months if you will be studying English language), you may be able to enter as a 'short-term student'. If this route is not appropriate then Tier 4 is the section of the immigration system that deals with student visas.
You can find out more information about the requirements, and download an application form on the Home Office website
If you have any questions about immigration and visas, or are having problems applying, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 0044 1978 293433 (from outside the UK) or 01978 293433 (from inside the UK).
Tier 4’s Points Based System (PBS) - you need to score 40 points to be awarded a student visa.
- Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS)
30 points are awarded for having a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from a UK Tier 4 Sponsor. Wrexham Glyndŵr University is a Tier 4 Sponsor, which allows us to offer courses restricted in other institutes. Our sponsor licence number is AGA39FYY8.
A CAS is a database record held on an online system between the university and the UK’s Home Office. It contains information about you and the course you’ll be doing here and is identified by a unique reference number. We’ll give you this reference number and a copy of the information we enter onto the online system to help you complete your application form.
- Maintenance Requirement
10 points are awarded for proving you have enough funds to support yourself financially whilst in the UK. This is also known as the 'maintenance requirement'. Before a CAS can be issued you must pay your total first year tuition fee. You must also show enough funds for living expenses whilst in the UK. The Tier 4 Policy Guidance sets out the maintenance funds. Currently, you must have a minimum of £9,135 (based on £1,015 per month for a maximum of 9 months). If your course is less than 9 months, you will need to ensure you show the total amount based on £1,015 per month for the total duration of your course.
A CAS can only be used once. Also, the earliest you can submit your visa application is 3 months before your course starts, but you can start planning straightaway: ensuring you have the correct documents and enough funding in your bank account.
Postgraduate courses - ATAS
If you’re studying at Masters level or above you may need an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate before you can apply for your visa. Your conditional offer letter will let you know whether or not this is necessary.
The ATAS certificate is issued by the UK government. Typically it is for academic areas such as maths, science and technology. There is more information and help on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s website.
Be aware – it can take several weeks to obtain ATAS clearance so make sure you start the process as soon as possible after you have been made a conditional offer to study.
