    UG applicants must apply through UCAS.  Central boards from India are accepted but only Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and West Bengal State boards are accepted.  

    Refer to the zoom intro recording below for details of % required from Indian students.



    PG applications are to be submitted online through their website.

    You can list a second PG course if the student has one in case they get rejected from their first or their first is full.

    Courses are generally filled by April for the September intake.

    After we have submitted an application to the University we MUST complete their online agent webform within 4 - 6 weeks.

    On this form we need to enter the following unique code to C2C UKCTUC

    Here is a link to the City Agent Referral Application form City University Agent Referral Application form

    It is important that you add the 9 digit student id number. This is NOT the application number which is 7 digits. The student id number will be received by email once you have submitted an application.



    No English waiver is possible.  All students MUST have a form English language test.  The ONLY test that is accepted for every course is IELTS.  If students have another test such as TOEFL it may not be accepted - you will need to refer to the course entry requirements.



    Agent change or Agent nomination will NOT be accepted.  

    Message from the University June 23: "For tagging purposes, City are only able to consider the agent who has helped the student with pre-application assistance (i.e. helping submit the course application). Therefore, we are unable to consider any change of agent forms, or where the student has applied independently."



    There are no credibility interviews at City.  A deposit will be required before the CAS is issued.  Some courses may require an interview before a decision is taken.

  • Commission(%): 10 - 20%
  • Commission(Additional Information):


    City University requires VAT to be absorbed into the commisison total.

    Take the total commission due and divide by 6.  This will give the total VAT due to HMRC (UK tax office).  Deduct this amount from the total commission due and the work out your commission payment.

    Example:  Total commission due is £2400.  Divide this by 6 and you get £400.  Take £400 off the total commisison due and you get £2000.  Multiply by your commission % share and this is your commission due.


    Commission for 2022 and 2023 academic years will be the following

    5 or less enrolled students = 10%

    6 – 30 enrolled students = 15%

    31 – 60 enrolled students = 17%

    Over 60 enrolled students = 20%


    Commission will NOT be paid for direct applicants.




    Only 10% commission will be paid for PG business courses and they will not count towards the tiered targets above

    No commission will be paid for online courses or courses in Dubai

n response to proposed changes to visa concessions (that may result in international students being required to be present in the UK to start in-person and on-campus learning from September), the University will offer financial support to students from countries requiring quarantine on arrival. The University has informed undergraduate offer holders of this decision and postgraduate offer holders will be contacted shortly. Once we have the full details we will also let you know.

Online or in-person teaching Those requiring a Student Visa have a choice about how they want to begin their studies in September 2021. As part of this year’s CAS issuing process, students will be asked whether they intend to start their course in person, here in London; or, whether they wish to start their programme online, in their home country. If they start their studies online for term 1, the next opportunity for them to transition to in-person study in the UK will be for term 2, beginning in January 2022. All students have the option to begin their studies online and transition to in-person for term 2, in January 2022. Please note if they do choose to begin their studies online, at this stage, we cannot guarantee the benefits of the Graduate Entry Route. More information can be seen here under the tabs ‘Beginning your studies’ and ‘Your course’ CAS issuing process As explained above, as part of the CAS issuing procedure, students will be asked if they intend to start their course in person or if they wish to start their programme online, in their home country. A student who says ‘in person’ and completes all the e:vision tasks will be issued with a CAS. Where the students chooses ‘online’ they will not receive a CAS and the e:vision tasks will cease. A student can change their mind before the end of August and we ask them to contact their Admissions Officer if this is the case. Please note where an international student states they are in-person and does not complete registration with proof of having entered the UK using their Student Visa, their CAS will be removed. This is line with Home Office policy. More information can be seen here under the tab ‘Studying in-person’, and on the Visa webpages here International Support Package For all students from red-list countries, who arrive in the UK to start their studies this September, we will pay the costs associated with their quarantine. This package will cover accommodation and testing costs up to the value of £1,750. This scheme covers all new and returning international students arriving from red-list countries for the new academic year 2021.
