English Dates and Fees

Dates and Fees 

Please refer to the Enrolment Form for our full terms and conditions.  Course descriptions are available for each course.  Fees do not include external exam fees.  All fees shown were correct at the time of going to press, although our UK partner school reserves the right to make changes to courses, dates and fees.  Fees are updated every year in January.

Enrolment fee:
£100 (payable once only).

Included in every course are the following:
- A student identity card, map of Bournemouth and Student Welcome Pack.
- A course certificate for each course completed successfully (students must attend at least 80% of their lessons to receive a certificate.  Students must have completed at least 2 full weeks at a particular level to receive a certificate at that level).
- A final report, if requested.  Levels are mapped using the Common European Framework.
- Academic counselling, welfare, general counselling and administration services.

Exam Fees

Sports and Social Activities Programme
The school staff are always on hand to help you to organize social and sporting activities – in and outside the college.  There are regular social activities in the evenings and at weekends, including free film shows, international parties, cultural lectures and sports matches.  Some of the events that are organized are provided free of charge, others you will have to pay for.  Here is a sample list of some of the activities that they organise, together with the fees payable:
Bowling: £6 per game.
Swimming: £5 per session.
Ice-skating: £5 per session.
Qasar (laser game): £7 per session.
Paintballing: £25 per session (includes transport to the venue).

You will find that the school often arranges half-day and full-day trips (usually at weekends) to places of cultural interest.  Visits to London, Windsor, Salisbury and Stonehenge, Bath and the Isle of Wight are very popular with students.  The social programme helps you to get to know students and members of staff, gives you the chance to practise and consolidate your English and opens the door to British culture and entertainment.
Typical cost per full-day excursion: £38.
Typical cost per half-day excursion: £26.

Course fees do not include insurance.  Students are strongly advised to arrange insurance to cover personal possessions, money, passport, fee reimbursement, cancellation, personal liability, medical and personal injury.  Neither RDLC nor the school arranges insurance for students, although we strongly advise students to arrange cover for themselves.

This advice does not constitute a recommendation and students should ensure that they find an insurance provider that offers the insurance cover most appropriate to their own specific needs.

Single room host family accommodation (June, July and August): £ per week.

Twin room (September – May): £ per week per person.

Executive en-suite host family accommodation: £ per week.
Executive host family accommodation includes single room accommodation with en-suite facilities, use of IT facilities and access to the internet.

All accommodation is available from Sunday to Saturday (inclusive).  Students should normally arrive to start their accommodation on a Sunday evening and depart on Sunday morning (the Saturday would be their last night of accommodation).  Alternative arrangements are sometimes possible, but students should contact the school as early as possible to arrange this and there may be an additional cost.

All students staying in accommodation arranged by the school must send us details of their expected arrival time. 

There is a £35 per week supplement during the Christmas holiday.  The school cannot always offer accommodation during the Christmas holiday, although this should be possible if it is booked in advance.  If students wish to return to their host family after Christmas and would like to leave their belongings in their host family bedroom (but not stay in it), they will still have to pay £35 to hold the room.  If students cancel their accommodation, they will have to pay a cancellation charge of £30 and give at least 7 days’ notice.

Types of host family accommodation
Single rooms are available in either “Homestay Accommodation” or “Private Home Accommodation”.

Homestay Accommodation means that hosts treat the student as a full member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas.  No more than four students will be accommodated in Homestay accommodation at any one time.

Private Home Accommodation is accommodation in a private home for adults.  More than four adult students may be accommodated in the home and there may be less direct contact with the host(s).  Students may be self-catering.  Private home accommodation is not suitable for under-16s.

Both of these options are half-board from Monday to Friday (ie. Bed, breakfast and evening meal) and full-board at weekends (ie. Bed, breakfast, lunch and evening meal).  Both are offered subject to availability.  Students under 18 years of age and students over 18 years of age  will not be accommodated in the same families.  In all cases, students are placed in host families as close to the school as possible.  Host families will wash at least one load of laundry per student per week.

Method of Payment
The invoice will be in Pounds Sterling.  A completed enrolment form should be sent to RDLC or to the school with full fees.  (Please note that the enrolment fee of £50 is non-refundable).  Fees are in Pounds Sterling.  You must pay all bank charges.


Online: You can also pay online by credit card using the school's secure payment facility: contact us for more details of how to do this.  Please add 2.4% for the service when you make an online payment.  There is no service charge if you pay online using your debit card.
