At Auckland College we have many years of experience of welcoming and providing a high-quality education for our international students and the whole school team is well versed in dealing with the problems that students experience when adjusting to a life in the United Kingdom and supporting them through their period of adjustment.

Auckland College is proud to welcome and educate students from a diverse community. Over the years we have welcomed students from many different countries such as China, Africa, Hong Kong, Dubai, Egypt, Abu Dhabi, Kazakhstan, Spain, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Cuba and Oman.

International pupils are warmly welcomed at Auckland College, supported by our highly experienced Registrar, Mrs Jan Webster. Our Tier 4 Sponsor Licence enables our International pupils to study up to GCSE level, and to bring a global perspective to life at Auckland College, enrich the community’s diversity and are a vital pipeline to British universities.

In addition, Auckland College International pupils build up invaluable affection for our country and culture, which when they return home may last all their lives. We have over 15 different nationalities at Auckland College, which means a dynamic and diverse pupil base.

International students can join Auckland College at multiple points throughout the school, but a great many of our students will join for our Secondary Department and the progressive, inclusive and supportive curriculum which it offers. This enables our students to be confident in coming to a new country, and also to be confident in the education that they are receiving, so that they may achieve the best possible results to be able to continue their studies at a higher level with the UK.

Auckland College understands the need to support International students at all points of their education both prior to joining Auckland College and during their time at Auckland. Teachers are in direct contact with students prior to their arrival, providing them with Web-based learning in preparation for joining.  Once arrived in the country, the school whole team is dedicated to ensuring a sound transition to life in the UK, and then in preparation for education after leaving Auckland we provide clear and supportive pathways into higher education. Therefore an International student and their family can be confident of getting the very best experience by choosing Auckland College.


International students require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK. To apply for a study visa they will require a Confirmation of Acceptance to Study (CAS) from the school.


We offer a range of GCSE courses (for students under 18 years old). The subjects that we offer are:

English, Maths, Science, Business Studies, History, Geography, ICT, Art, Spanish, & Physical Education. The student’s age and ability with the English language will determine the subjects and the qualifications offered.

Fees are £8000.00 per year.

School fees must be paid in full prior to the assignment of a CAS.
