In both these cases, students will be informed of any such fees at the time of purchase.

Visa information
Once we have received your application, we will send a Proof of Funds form, which must be completed in order for LSI to issue you a Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20), which is required in order to apply for a student visa at the US Consulate.

Travel and medical insurance
Travel and medical insurance is strongly recommended at all LSI schools for the duration of your stay, regardless of your course length or course/visa type.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the appropriate cover before departure and for the duration of your stay. Students may be required to show proof of medical insurance at the school upon arrival and may not be allowed to commence a course until satisfactory medical insurance has been obtained. Travel and medical insurance can be purchased from a third party through LSI when booking. Details of what this covers are available from your LSI representative. You are responsible for the belongings which you bring with you to LSI schools or accommodation and for taking out insurance for your own possessions.
