Bloomsbury Institute is unique in its diversity, thanks in part to our international students and staff who come to us from all over the world. We have a big heart, daring students and staff to be different, to make things happen, and to be kind. We will leave no one behind.
The Bloomsbury Institute difference
Students build up their hours on course, for example via Bloomsbury Law Clinic.
Upon graduation, all of our International Graduates recieve £1,000
In the heart of London’s education quarter, with access to Birkbeck’s vast library and resources.
As soon as international students are issued their CAS, they will have access to Student Circus, providing a wealth of vacancies, support, employability courses and resources.
The Student visa entitles students to work 20 hours per week, full-time during vacation, and on graduation they receive a further two-year Graduate visa.
We actively recruit globally, where you will find us at education fairs, see us on social media, and hear our name via student counsellors.
To find out if we accept your international qualifications, on many of our course pages you will find a box where you will be able to see which equivalent qualifications we accept per country. If you are unsure, just contact us.
Currently we are increasing our recruitment activity in Latin American countries.
Currently we are increasing our activity in African countries.
“Bloomsbury is the place for building careers, building confidence and making your life easier. I really enjoyed the modules in Business Management – particularly ‘Business Analytics’ and ‘Project Management’ – they are really rich modules.”
“I felt supported by the staff here, because they offered me so many opportunities to get involved. They helped me network with my peers, and also build my CV for employability opportunities.”
How international students apply to Bloomsbury in 6 easy steps
The applicant (or their agent) will then need to upload scans of the following documents:
- Academic Certificates and Transcripts
- Curriculum Vitae (CV)
- English Language qualification or test results
- Letter of Recommendation (if details of a referee have not been provided in the application form)
- Recent photograph
- MBA students will also be required to provide proof of 2 years of supervisory/ managerial experience.
Once documents are approved, applicants will then be made an unconditional offer.
The unconditional offer is subject to the verification of the applicants’ documents.
Once all verification is complete, the applicant (or their agent if applicable) are provided with access to ‘CAS Shield’. This is where all visa compliance stages are completed before we can issue the applicant a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
Applicants will be asked to complete an online enrolment form; this confirms that they intend to study with us and allows us to issue thier CAS. The CAS can then then be used to apply for a Student Visa through the UKVI website.
We will send the applicant a date and time to attend Enrolment and Induction at our London campus; this usually takes place the week before term starts.
