THE PROCESS
After you choose the course and send us your documents, we start the next
stage: Exam preparation. The exam takes place ONLINE.

There will be an interview in English on Skype where you will be asked different
questions related to your life, etc. Usually, the interview is 30/60 minutes.
There will also be a mini essay to write up to 300 words.
We prepare you for the interview with all the questions.
Also, we are doing online training with you regarding all information about the
University interview.

If you pass the interview and are accepted to the university, we will start the next
stage: Applying for Student Finance.
Student Finance (how it works)
Student Finance England will provide you with a maintenance loan (up to £13000 if you are in London, or up to £10000 if you are outside London) for day-to-day living costs and a tuition fee (£9250) loan to pay the university (if you are eligible).

The maintenance loan will be paid directly into your bank account in three instalments at the start of each term and can be spent for your personal needs.

The loan amount will depend on your living circumstances and household income, which you can work out before receiving.

This money you repay after the course is finished and only if you earn more than £25000 per year. If you don't earn, you don't repay. If you earn more than £25000, you only repay 9% of any income which is above it. You pay in small instalments directly from the wages, like an extra tax.

Also if you are a student in England, you will have 30% discount for Travel Card and up to 100% discount for Council tax. (depends on you situation)
Example:
After 4 years, you started to earn £30000 per year. £30000 - £25000 = £5000

From £5000 take 9% and it will be £450.

So if after 4 years your salary will be 30000 you should pay every year £450 or £37.5 per month.
