Students who have not paid their tuition fees will not be allowed to continue on their course and the College will notify the UK Home Office about your Visa. Cheshire College isn’t responsible for any fees paid to an agent.

Students who enrol on additional courses will have to pay a separate fee. Students who enrol on a two-year course will pay any increase in tuition fee in the second year of their study (if applicable).
