Acorn House welcomes applications from international students who are able to demonstrate the following:

A strong academic background

The College does not require any specific grade requirements in order to ensure that students with the full range of international qualification can be considered. However, a good academic record is essential for A Level students in particular. 

English Language

Students from overseas who require a Tier 4 general visa will be required to take and pass an English test recognised by the UKVI.  Our staff can advise on the available tests. Students who do not require a visa or who require a different type of visa have different English requirements but should at least have a level of English that allows them to benefit fully from their course.

Academic Ambition

At Acorn House College, we are keen to accept students with a strong desire to pursue academia after school and go on to a top university.
