Information for International Students

Edinburgh School of Food & Wine regularly accepts students from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Due to the fact that our courses do not run longer than 6 months, students can remain in the UK for the duration of the course on either a student or holiday visa.

As with all higher education facilities in the UK, Edinburgh School of Food & Wine works closely with UK Border Agency. Requirements demand that students wishing to attend from overseas are required to pay the full course fees prior to a confirmation letter of acceptance from ESFW. If a visa is refused, a refund will be subsequently issued.
If you require further information on studying in the UK, visit the UK Border Agency website:


Additionally, please do not hesitate to contact Edinburgh School of Food & Wine at any time, when we would be delighted to assist you in any way.
