International Students

If you are applying from abroad but wish to attend our in-person schools.


We welcome and encourage international students to both our in-person and online schools and we are very proud of our truly diverse student body. That is just one of the things that makes studying at IDSA so great. However, there are a few things that you need to take into consideration if you are moving here to study in-person:


How will you fund and pay for the course?

We do not take cash payments. All payments must be made via our CRM system Classter, through Paypal (a credit or debit card can be used.) Please check that you have made arrangements to pay via paypal and are able to do so if you are online or in-person.

Are you thinking of working to support yourself?

-If you are, then you need the right to work in the UK.

– You will also need a Visa, if applicable. IDSA cannot support you with VISA applications, please approach the appropriate government body to do so.

EU students

please note that the UK is no longer a member of the European Union and therefore the VISA application process may be lengthier. Please check waiting times.


All of these arrangements should be in place before you accept your place.
