Full list of additional fees for 2023/2024

The following fees will be added as an extra when applicable. Most of the additional fees are optional, with a few compulsory depending on the student’s personal circumstances.

Please note that they are pertinent to the 2022/2023 academic year only and need to be revised yearly. Most programmes are priced according to the number of students participating and the costs quoted by external providers. Therefore, in some occasions the exact charge cannot be determined until a term has progressed for several weeks and students have expressed their interests and commitment to take part in their preferred activities.

Please see the full list of additional fees below.

  • Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS): £25

A one-off fee charged with the first invoice from OIC. (Compulsory for Tier 4 sponsored students)

  • Headstart programme: £3,200

A two-week academic programme prior to commencing an A-Level course with OIC. The stated fee includes tuition, accommodation, and meals. (Compulsory if included in the offer, otherwise optional)

  • Non-resident charge – meals and gym facility: £4,940 pa

An annual charge for students who do not reside at the College’s provided accommodation. Covers access to Gym facilities provided by OIC and full access to the school canteen, alongside boarding students. Cooked meals are provided three times a day, Monday to Sunday, with snacks and drinks available for take-out throughout the day. (Students are expected to attend school on Saturdays for weekly testing and occasional Sundays for extra-curricular activities, so will be able to make full use of this offering).

Long school days can be physically and mentally demanding, so access to freshly cooked nutritious meals contributes to maintaining our students’ high performance and motivation, whilst access to the gym for leisure and sports activities helps foster bonding among day students and boarders. (Compulsory for day students only)

  • A2 Biology Field Trip: Approx. £550 (Subject to the actual costs)

(Compulsory for Year 13 Biology students)

  • GCSE Geography Field Trip: Approx. £550 (Subject to the actual costs)

(Compulsory for Year 11 Geography)

  • One-to-one tuition: £90/hour

Hourly fee when a student receives one-to-one lessons outside of any group programme or group tuition fee. This also applies when the chosen subject is not offered by the College and therefore a special teaching arrangement has to be made. Students can also opt to have extra one-to-one support if they wish. (Optional, example – Music lessons)

  • Native Language: £1,950 pa

An annual charge for students who elect to take up Chinese or Russian at A-Level. The yearly fee is payable in full if the student intends to sit for the exam. This class is elective and an excellent grade in the subject can boost the university application. Therefore, although the language selected is native to the student, taking the class is compulsory to ensure that student is well prepared to attain the highest score possible.

Student will receive two hours per week of group lessons to prepare for the Native Language A Level. Lessons will be delivered by specially hired tutors at OIC. Some students take Native Language lessons (Chinese/Russian) with the view to boosting their UCAS application, as universities may accept Chinese/Russian as valid A Level subjects. This can be an advantage when meeting conditions of an offer.

We understand that since this is the student’s native language, the perception may be that students do not require as much assistance in this subject. However, as they will be taking examination at our College, we need to ensure that we monitor and provide the necessary support (even if this is minimal). From experience, students who have sat ANY exam, including native languages, without preparation often do not do well and this will have a negative impact on their university application. (Optional)

  • LAMDA: £800 until completion

A public course run by a qualified course provider with expertise. Examinations at the end of the course lead to an award/certification that counts towards a university application. In addition, the transferable skills developed by students will enhance other areas of their academic life, progress and future career. Please see the link below to the website that can provide direct information: https://www.lamda.ac.uk/ (Optional)

  • EPQ (Extended project Qualification): £1,500 until completion

An Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a qualification taken by students in England and Wales, where it is equivalent to half an A level. The students are free to choose a topic, although they must show that it is academically useful and either related to their current course of study, or to their future career.

The EPQ is a single component linear qualification. Students undertake their Extended Project in the context of a project topic they have selected, in agreement with the College. (Optional)

  • Young Enterprise: £250 pa (optional)

A programme which is mentored by external business advisors, where students learn to establish and run their own businesses for a year. Please note that the company registration fee is shared and paid directly by students (£80 per registration). Please see : https://www.youngenterprise.org.uk/ (Optional)

  • Duke of Edinburgh: £850

A well-known programme which leads to three level awards (Bronze, Silver & Gold), which attainment supports university application. Students are expected to show participation and commitment in three areas (sport, charity and art) and completed an expedition which challenged their fitness, teamwork, navigation skills and endurance, to name a few. (Optional)

  • GAP (Goodwill Ambassador Programme): £2,500 – £4,000 depending on destination and length of stay

An International programme during the summer break to gain real exposure to future career by shadowing doctors, lawyers, scientists and other professionals. In previous years, the two destination choices for these work observation opportunities were Malaysia and Botswana. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity with benefits, experiences and outcomes far beyond the direct career-related experience. Students will be able to refer to this in their University application. (Optional)

  • Summer University Preparation Programme: £3,400

A two-week programme at the end of summer break prior to starting the A2 year at OIC. The students are given intense and highly tailored assistance with their UCAS applications from both external and internal advisors providing support and guidance on all elements of the university application process. This is an important programme at the beginning of the student pathway to higher education.  (Optional but highly recommended)

  • Weekly Cleaning – £40 per week including linen change

Wavy Gate flat residents. (Optional)

  • CERN Trip – February Half-term: £1,700

A four-day trip to visit the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the United Nations and some museums in Geneva. (Optional)

  • Perlego Library Service: £96 per year

Perlego provides unlimited digital access to more than 500,000 titles in every subject imaginable. By giving students the opportunity to freely explore their interests, we are adding enormous value to their learning experiences, and ensuring that when they come to be interviewed by one of the world’s top universities, they have this wider reading to refer to, and can demonstrate some of the awareness and critical thinking beyond their subject that Oxford, Cambridge, and other world-famous colleges require.
