Before You Arrive

Studying at Brunel Language Centre may be your first stepping stone to life at Brunel. You will be joining a lively student community, in which we provide a friendly and supportive teaching environment in order to help you achieve the results you need for success in your future work or study. 

After you apply and provide all required information and documents Admissions have requested, you will receive a conditional offer by email. It is very important that you carefully read your offer letter. If you are happy with it, you MUST:

  1. Log in to eVision;
  2. Accept the offer;
  3. Pay a £1000 deposit (or upload a financial guarantee letter if you are sponsored) to confirm your place.

If you need to apply for a Student Visa and you meet the criteria, a CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) letter will be issued once you confirm your place and get your unconditional offer.

For information on Joint / Single CAS, please read this document: Joint-CAS-criteria-advice-sheet.pdf (

For further details and advice on visas and immigration, please visit our website Visas and Immigration | Brunel University London

If you need to contact us about your offer and/or CAS letters, please email

Your registration process starts one month before your course start date. You can start your enrolment if you have already received and accepted your unconditional offer. To enrol you MUST log in to eVision and complete the online Checklist:

  • My Personal Information;
  • My finance;
  • My Passport;
  • My Student Entry visa, if applicable;
  • My Biometric Residence Permit (BRP), if applicable;
  • My Date of Entry to the UK, if applicable;
  • My Student Photo.

For further information and instructions on how to do this, please see our:

When should I pay?

To confirm your place, you need to pay your deposit once you accept your conditional offer, but no later than 30 days before your course start date. If you are sponsored, you need instead to upload a copy of your financial guarantee letter to your eVision portal.

Once your place is confirmed and you get your unconditional offer, you need to accept the unconditional offer and complete the online enrolment task (the Checklist) on eVision.

Finance is an essential part of the enrolment Checklist. You should pay your fees (or provide a sponsorship letter) as soon as your offer is unconditional, but no later than 10 days before your course start date, to allow enough time for payment to be processed and approved on your account so that you can complete your enrolment in due course.

How can I pay?

There are 3 payment methods you can use to pay your fees, but we recommend you pay either online or over the phone because bank transfers take longer to reach us. But you MUST always use your student number as reference for all of your payments and communications with us.

  1. Online: Pay your tuition fees for the current academic year online quoting your student number via Flywire or Brunel Online Payments
  2. Over the phone: by calling our Income Office securely on +44 (0) 1895 265264 between 10am to 1pm (UK Time) Monday-Friday (excluding UK bank holidays). Card payments taken over the phone will update your student account on the next working day.
  3. Bank transfer: only in exceptional circumstances if you have not been able to make payments either online or over the phone, you can pay by bank transfer using the University's bank details. Again, you MUST always use your student number as reference so we can trace and recognise your payment.

For more information on how to make a payment, please visit Making a Payment: International Students. You should also familiarise yourself with our Finance Policy, which you can access on our website here Brunel Language Centre Finance Policy.
