Overseas applicants and qualifications
In order to prove that you have suitable qualifications for our training routes, we require applicants who have not received their education in the UK, to obtain a 'statement of equivalency' from UK NARIC in order to verify that your qualifications are equivalent to UK standard. We recommend that this is done before you apply.
Please follow the link below to be taken to the UK NARIC website to find out more about how to obtain this. Please speak to a member of the team to clarify any advice you receive. We are happy to advise on suitable equivalencies if required.
Applicants from the Republic of Ireland
Irish citizens can continue to enter, work and study in the UK under the Commmon Travel Area(Link opens in new window) as they did previously. They are charged the same fees as UK nationals, and may be eligible to some of the same funding.
Applicants from other EU/EEA Countries
Citizens from a country inside the European Economic Area (Link opens in new window) (EEA) or Switzerland, and were living in the UK before 31 December 2020, can apply to the EU Settlement Scheme(Link opens in new window).
If your application is successful, these applicants can continue to live, work and study in the UK after 30 June 2021, enabling them to start a training programme in September 2021.
Applicants from non-EU/EEA countries
We are not able to provide sponsorship for applicants that require it.
Overseas applicants can not do the tuition-fee/unsalaried route if a visa is required because the Pimlico London SCITT is not able to act as a sponsor. It is the responsibility of individual employing schools to have a Home Office sponsorship licence to enable them to sponsor overseas applicants wishing to do the salaried route.
You will need to have the right to work to do this route.
You can find out more about the various visa options by following the link below.
