they are not simply lectures. The number of students in each class is limited in order to facilitate attention to individual students needs.
Your aims are our concern. The College administration does its utmost to assist students in all practical ways so that they may concentrate on academic achievement in a congenial atmosphere which is conducive to study. When students enter a course of study with The City Business College, their main purpose is to gain appropriate qualifications which will help them to further their chosen career. Apart from ensuring that all students achieve this objective it is important to us that all students who attend are given every opportunity to realise their own potential and to start making, with confidence, those decisions which will affect the future direction of their studies.
Before students can be accepted by the College, they must complete an application form and pay the minimum deposit. This will confirm a place on the student's chosen course. Course fees must be paid before the start of classes.
The College offers a variety of tuition to suit all tastes. All examination courses are available on a full-time basis, entailing at least 15 hours of teaching-time per week.
Upon payment of the minimum deposit the College will issue a Letter of Acceptance. A separate letter can be used for the purpose of arranging a transfer of funds from abroad. The Letter of Acceptance can be sent together with passport and bank statement to the Home Office or relevant British High Commission or Embassy for visa purposes. Money from abroad can be transferred directly to the College's bank account.
There is ample accommodation available within easy reach of the College. In addition, the College operates its own accommodation service on behalf of registered students. The college also has a selection of flats available when vacant.
In January 2005 City Business College was recognised by the UK Government Department for Education and Skills and is now included
in their Register of Education Providers. The UK Government will now only provide visas for foreign students if they are studying at institutions in the Register of Education Providers.
