As a well-regarded boarding school, Lancing College has a strong tradition of welcoming pupils with parents living all over the world. We have a solid boarding ethos and our pupils often comment on the diverse nature of the school and how this equips them in becoming confident, well-rounded global citizens.
We welcome international pupils to the College’s Sixth Form to complete their education. The College offers a broad range of A Level options and extensive support to pupils applying for university in the UK or overseas. We also offer guidance for those pupils wishing to take a gap year before university, or who are considering other options.

Sixth Form pupils take part in our recently developed ‘Leaving Lancing Programme’, which aims to prepare them with the necessary practical, social and leadership skills.
Lancing College offers a safe and caring environment where pupils are given the necessary support to excel in their academic studies, and at the same time, benefit from a wealth of co-curricular activities and over 550 acres of English countryside.
“I have gained my independence and feel academically well prepared. Lancing College has taught me to work hard and how to learn.”
International pupil from Ukraine, 2016
Applying for a place at Lancing and to study in the UK is a relatively straightforward process. The Lancing admissions team is experienced in guiding international parents and pupils through our entry requirements, from first enquiry and visit to your son’s or daughter’s arrival for their first term.
Admissions to the College are based on an examination, informal interview in person with the Registrar (or via Skype) and is subject to a satisfactory report and reference from your child’s current school.
International students who are currently studying at a UK senior school will be expected to achieve a minimum of six Bs at GCSE Level.
Excellent Academic Results
The academic team at the College works with every pupil to understand his or her interests and capabilities to ensure every child maximises their potential. You can view the College’s 2016 A Level results HERE.
Applying for a place
The first step is to return the Registration Form together with the relevant registration fee. We also require a current reference or report from the candidate’s school and all candidates will be interviewed (this can be by Skype), prior to a place being offered.
At this point we strongly encourage parents to seek information regarding the requirements for your son/daughter to study in the UK.
The UK Government publishes some helpful advice:
If you agree with any of the following, you will need to satisfy with Government requirements for your child to study in the UK:
- You live outside European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and your child has been studying where you reside
- You live outside European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland and your child has been studying within the UK (in this instance you will need to renew your Tier 4 Child Visa with Lancing as your new school).
