International Students

LKH has a rich cultural mix of students from many different nationalities, and we welcome international students and the additional breadth of experiences and perspectives you bring to our inclusive learning community.

LKH has been granted a Tier 4 sponsor licence by the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI), and we welcome applications to all our academic programmes.

We have previously hosted scholars and students financed via funding from the Council For World Mission as well as students who are self-financing. We charge the same fees for international students as for home students.

For full details, follow the appropriate links below:

Applying for our Courses

When making an application, together with your application form you should include a photocopy or electronic scan of the details page of your passport and relevant qualifications which you should certify are true copies of the original documents. We have produced an information sheet for international students which we would strongly encourage you to read before applying for a place on one of our courses.

Legal Requirements

To be granted a visa to study in the UK, you have to demonstrate that you meet the United Kingdom Visas and Immigration legal requirements, including demonstrating:

your English language ability
your ability to pay for your studies and your living costs whilst in the UK
medical requirements
English Language Requirements
It is important that every student is able to read and write English well and that you can comply with UKVI’s requirements for study. Even when students come from countries where English is spoken such as India or South Africa, they may still need to provide evidence of proficiency in English, for example through successful completion of an approved secure English language test. Look at the UKVI information for a list of secure English tests to see which test is most suitable for you.

Financial Requirements
Before you can be granted a visa for study in the UK, the UK government requires you to demonstrate your ability to pay your course fees and that you have enough money to live in the UK for a minimum of 9 months (known as maintenance funds). The government sets out details of the money you are required to have in your bank account on its website. See also guidance published by UKCISA.

Regretfully, we have very limited bursary funds and any students contemplating moving to the UK to study should ensure that they have sufficient finance to meet both their fees and their own living costs. The British Council is a UK Government funded body which has a wealth of information about studying in the UK:

Medical Tests
Applicants from some countries are also required to undertake certain medical tests to prove that they are free from particular diseases.

Orientation and Registration

Once you have been offered a place on one of our academic programmes, you will be sent a welcome and orientation guide to help you prepare for study in the UK.

Orientation for our overseas students takes place at the start of September each year. Students will be allocated individual appointments with the registrar.

There are a limited number of flats available on site for international students. For more information, please speak to the Registrar.
