Essential information Studying at GCU Students must have a valid visa that entitles them to study at GCU and the visa should be valid for the duration of their course. International students at GCU must: • Promptly update the University with any change to your visa information, contact details and emergency contact details • Have a valid visa and prepare any visa extension 90 days before it expires via the Visa Immigration Support and Advice (V.I.S.A.) team • Attend all your classes and contact your school if you are absent for any reason • Not undertake paid work during term time for more than the permission stated on your visa (ie 10/20 hours per week or not at all) • Attend our Tier 4 attendance monitoring census during term time • Check your University email account at least weekly and obey any instructions relating to GCU or UKVI regulations or processes • Attend re-registration and two checkpoints during the year to continue on your course. Fees Student fees include all tuition, examination and IT and access to the library. Applicants are advised of the fees they will incur once a formal offer of a place has been made. Fee levels for each programme can be found on 26 pages 36-41 and online at www.gcu.ac.uk/ money/fees/international. If you are unsure about your fee status, please contact the Admissions and Enquiries service for advice. The University needs you to pay a deposit when firmly accepting your unconditional offer to secure a place on your chosen programme. Once this deposit is received, you will be sent all the documents necessary to apply for your visa.
