The College (Overseas Applications)
Admissions timeline for 2014 onwards
Stage One: Enquiring
Making an enquiry is the first stage of the admission process for overseas applicants. Following your call or email, we will take note of your contact details and send you a prospectus. At this point, we will also ask to see a copy of a current school report, where possible. This assists both you and the College in determining whether Brighton is the right choice for your child.
We are happy to receive reports electronically. When contacting us by email, please be sure to direct your enquiry to the appropriate person:
For 11+ enquiries: Mrs Diedhiou-Roy firstname.lastname@example.org
For 13+ enquiries: Ms Billcliff email@example.com
For 16+ enquiries: Ms Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org
For all other enquiries, please contact email@example.com
Stage Two: Registering
After we have received your child's school report and confirmed that we would like to progress the application, the next step is to complete our registration form. If you would like your child to be considered for a place, please do complete this form and return it to us, along with the overseas registration fee. This should be done at least 12 months in advance of the intended date of admission.
Once your child is registered, they are entered on our books as having officially expressed an interest in joining the College, and will be invited to sit our assessments. At this stage, you might like to arrange an individual visit, to tour the College with one of our prefects and to meet our teachers. Please do call us in advance to arrange this, especially if making special travel arrangements, as our visits diary is often very busy.
Registrations for candidates from Hong Kong, China and Bangkok will close at 5:00pm GMT on Wednesday 11th September 2013.
Please note that registrations for other overseas candidates for entry in September 2014 will close at 5:00pm GMT on Wednesday 25th September 2013.
Stage Three: Assessments
Assessments normally take place in the October of the year prior to entry. For further information on assessment dates and options for sitting our entry papers in your country of residence, please contact the relevant member of the admissions team. All applicants for whom English is not a native language will sit an assessment in English as an Additional Language (EAL).
Before the assessments, we will contact your child's current school for a reference, so it is advisable to discuss your application with them.
Stage Four: Admission
Pupils are offered places at the College on the basis of their performance in the entry assessments. A place is confirmed by signing and returning an original copy of the acceptance form, along with payment of the relevant acceptance deposit. Joining papers are then sent out over the summer, and the pupil joins the College.
For pupils joining us from outside the European Union, we are able to sponsor an application for a study visa, in our role as a Highly Trusted Sponsor with the UK Border Agency.
All applicants to the College for whom English is not a native language will be required to attend lessons at our specialist EAL Department until the Head of EAL is satisfied that the pupil has reached the standard of English necessary to study at a UK university.
