Find out if you are an overseas fee payer
International undergraduate and postgraduate applicants will be required to pay a £1,000 deposit to obtain their Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). This deposit is non-refundable. The balance of 50% of fees is due on arrival at UCS with the final 50% due on invoice.
*Please note that any international students accepted on a course that requires a practice placement with a Primary Care Trust, for example Nursing, Midwifery or Radiography, will pay an additional £3000 fee per each year of study (this excludes all British Islands students except the Falkland Islands).
Scholarships for overseas fee payers
UCS offers an early payment scholarship of £500 to all full-time undergraduate and postgraduate international students who pay their yearly tuition fee in full by 30 September of the year of study.

UCS requires you to show evidence of your ability to cover the costs of studying in the UK for the duration of your course. Students will need to provide a satisfactory financial guarantee certifying that you have sufficient funds.
Money required for Tier 4 General Student visa
To get a Tier 4 General student visa, you will need to show that you have enough money in your account to cover the full cost of the course, including one year's full course fee and maintenance cost. For example, you will need to show that you have the course fee plus £7,200 as living expenses in your account for 9 months if you are living outside of the UK or if you do not have an 'established presence' in the UK.
If you have an established presence in the UK you are required to show that you have enough money in your account to cover the course fee and living costs for each month of the course for up to a maximum of 2 months. For example the course fee plus £1600 for a period ending no more than 1 month before your application. This is in accordance with the new UKBA requirements.
