The enrolment fees for our courses are competitive and are determined by factors explained on this page. Prospective applicants should therefore review below details carefully before booking.

We operate three different fee categories (A, B, and C) the eligibility criteria for which are detailed here. You will need to select the applicant category which corresponds to your circumstances. Each application is fully validated. Only for the 20-week courses there is a set of early-bird rates rewarding early booking.

The fees and their validity for our two programmes in the current academic year are shown below.

Terms & conditions

By proceeding with course registration you acknowledge that you understand that

  • full payment must be made at the time of registration. We are unfortunately unable to accept payment in installments;
  • members of the 'Friends of Imperial College' must hold valid membership for a minimum of 3 months counting from the start of the Autumn term;
  • refunds are not possible once payment has been made and the term has started (NOTE: clashes with your work or study timetable are NOT grounds for a refund);
  • students must be registered for their course prior to attending any sessions

Policy on registration of minors

Unfortunately our classes are not open to anyone under the age of 16 at the time of registration. Those who are 16 or 17 must have our Centre's parental consent form [pdf] signed which follows the College’s policy on minors. The signed form should be emailed or posted to our Centre at the time of registration. Not affected are under-age applicants who wish to join a course alongside their parent or guardian.

Change of course level (language courses only)

Should you find the language course level you have chosen unsuitable for your level of proficiency we will endeavour to register you for a different course, however this is subject to availability and seeking advice from the relevant language coordinator. We strongly encourage all language-course applicants excluding absolute beginners to seek course-level advice from the relevant language coordinator PRIOR to registration. This will ensure you start the programme at the correct level.

Bookings are made on the Imperial College Online Store via the booking link located at the bottom of your desired course's information page.

  • Applicants should access the Online Store.
  • Upon completion of your booking please look for an automated payment receipt in your (spam) email containing a link to a student details form which must be filled in online as it is a mandatory part of the Lunchtime Learning course registration process.

Registration Step 2 | Completing the Applicant Details Form

Once you have booked your place online and completed your student details form there is nothing further to be done. If there are any issues with your booking we will contact you.

In October you will be sent an enrolment confirmation message, to be followed nearer to the start of term by further details including classroom details and your tutor's email address.
