We are licensed as a sponsor by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and offer Child Student visa (previously Tier 4) sponsorship for Sixth Form entry only.
The Perse does not have any boarding accommodation. All guardianship arrangements must be arranged either with Cambridge Guardians or Cambridge Guardian Angels. Please contact them directly for further details.
For Sixth Form entry only, we are able to accept applications from students who require Child Student visa (previously Tier 4) sponsorship, and a small number of sponsored students join our Sixth Form each year. Applicants must be 16 years of age on entry to the Sixth Form.
To apply for Sixth Form entry, applicants must complete and submit a Child Student visa sponsorship registration form before the registration deadline.
All students will be required to sit the entrance tests. Some students may also be required to sit subject tests, in addition to the interview and entrance tests. Please contact our admissions office for further information.
Students for whom English is a second language must also prove their proficiency in English by taking an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test prior to the Perse Entrance Test Day. Students are required to achieve an overall score of 6.5 in the IELTS test, with a minimum of 6.5 in each of the listening, reading, writing and speaking sections, for admission to The Perse. You can find your nearest IELTS testing centre here.
Please note that sponsored students who receive an offer of a place are required to pay the first year’s course fees in advance.
