All self-funding students classified as international (according to EU regulations), who require a visa to study in the UK, will be required to pay a Tuition Fee Deposit. The purpose for this deposit is to help demonstrate that they have the finances required in order for them to enter the UK to study. This information is given within their CAS documentation, which is presented to the UKVI when applying for a British VISA. Deposits are taken once an offer has been issued.
