International students who receive an offer to study at St Margaret’s will be asked to accept their place by completing and returning an acceptance form and paying a deposit equal to one term’s fees. The international deposit will be returned at the end of a student’s time at the school, providing appropriate notice has been given and all fees have been settled.
St Margaret's parent company, Cognita, has a licence to sponsor Child Student visas. Please contact Cognita’s international team if you would like to discuss visa sponsorship. The team will be glad to support you throughout your application and subsequent studies. Families are asked to settle the academic year’s fees in full and pay a £500 administration fee for each Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) in advance of sponsorship.
The international team can support parents of students aged 4 to 11 years old who wish to join their children in the UK under the Parent of a Child Student visa route.
We also welcome international students who are dependents of their parents’ investor, skilled worker, and diplomatic visas, as well as those who come to the UK under many other immigration routes.
If you are unsure whether your child needs a Child Student visa, we recommend taking the UK Visas questionnaire to establish the most suitable immigration route for your family.
