You should find the following checklist of items useful. We recommend you carry important things with you in your hand luggage
- 5-8 kg personal effects (depending on airline) eg valuable items, toiletries, camera, mp3 etc.
- flight ticket
- valid passport (must be valid for at least 12 months) plus UK student visa
- two forms of identification : passport + one other (e.g. id card, birth certificate)
- original copy of your unconditional offer letter from LIMT college.
- original copy of certificates and transcripts
- contract letter from the Central Accommodation Office (if applicable)
- letter from sponsors / banker draft (s) - evidence that you can meet the cost of your fees and your maintenance during the time.
- cash / traveller cheques to approximately GBP500
- medical reports - evidence that you are in good health
- up to date vaccination certificates
- a full medical report (include chest X-ray) is not compulsory, although it is recommended, as you may be asked to undergo such an examination in the UK
Cost of living
The amount of money you will require for your day-to-day living expenses will vary from person to person. It is estimated that a single student should plan to spend up to £4,000 per semester for basic living expenses including accommodation, food, travel, books, clothes, entertainment and other personal expenses.
Health Care in the UK
Britain has a subsidised health service (the NHS – National Health Service) which provides free health care and treatment for people who are resident in Britain. This includes all students enrolled on a programme lasting for more than six months.
Doctors do not charge for treatment you receive. Any medicines that are prescribed by a doctor are subsidised but there will be a charge made for each prescription - currently £7.20 per item. Dental treatment is subsidised by the NHS but everyone has to pay something towards the cost of treatment.
Students studying at LIMT for less than six months will need to pay for all healthcare treatment. For these students we strongly recommend taking out health insurance before coming to the UK.
You must register with a doctor upon arrival in the UK.
Routine optical and dental treatment is not covered by NHS treatment. We strongly recommend that students get their eyes and teeth checked before coming to the UK as these services can be expensive in the UK.
Fee payment deadlines
In order to obtain your 5% ‘early payment discount’ you should pay your fees in full.
If you decide to pay your tuition fees by instalment you must inform the finance office. 50% of the tuition fee must be paid before enrolment. The second 50% instalment is due 12 weeks after the beginning of the semester.
Make sure that you have somewhere to stay in London before you set out. If you have not arranged any permanent accommodation, you should book a room in temporary accommodation while you look for permanent accommodation.
currently college doesn't have any accomodation facilities by its own, but the college can help students to find appropriate accomodation.
