Admissions Process

banner subpage pic17

Step 1

Complete the online application form and submit it along with copies of your educational documents and passport/ photo ID. For applicants whose first language is not English, an English Language test such as IELTS is required, the CEFR level required will be noted on the course entry requirements.

Step 2

It will take up to three working days to process the application form, to ensure you meet the entry requirements.

If successful, you will receive a Conditional Offer Letter by email. This will state the course title; start and end dates; course duration; tuitions fees payable and any conditions to be met. We normally ask all applicants to pay the full fees for the course, unless you are funded by your Government or other official sponsor. 

Step 3

When you have satisfied all conditions, you will be given an unconditional offer letter to use for your visa application. 

You are advised to read in full Manchester International College's Admissions Terms and Conditions before submitting an application. Students who submit an application to the College will be subject to the terms and conditions detailed within. If you are unsure about any information contained within this page, please speak to a member of the Admissions Team who will be able to advise you further.

Enquiries and Applications

If your enquiry or application reaches us before 12 noon UK time, we will acknowledge it on the same day.

If it reaches us after 12 noon, we will try to acknowledge on the same day, but in most cases, we will contact you within 24 hours.

We will normally process your application or enquiry within 3 working days and move your application to the next stage (conditional offer letter, visa letter, interview, etc.)

If your enquiry is complex and we need to find detailed answers, we will let you know how long this will take. If there is a delay in finding the information, we will tell you.  

For courses which require visa applications, we will advise you on what documents you must submit and give you enough time to give us these. Below is an outline of the standard times:

      • Student Visitor Visa - up to 3 working days
      • Extended Student Visitor Visa -  up to 4 working days
      • Tier 4 General Student Visa - up to 10 working days
