Notes

1. Fee is to be paid per term (includes all living and studying expenses) – exact fee will be checked once we have age and last qualification of the student and choice of school/city.
2. A UK based person/relative who can become child’s guardian in UK – Guardian will be responsible to keep the child with him/her if there are holidays in boarding schools, there are functions in boarding school and if there is any emergency. Students still have the choice to visit their own country during holidays (Guardian only has to give his/her written consent that he/she is agreeing to become the legal guardian while the child is studying in UK).
3. Bank statement requirement: Total fee of the year includes accommodation and food expenses for the year. Student needs to show remaining unpaid fee of the year in his/her parents account.
