Fees and Finance
If you are aged 16 – 18 (under 19) on 31st August 2020 and are an EU (including the UK) citizen who has lived in the UK/EU/EEA for at least 3 years, you are not required to pay tuition fees for your full-time course
Students over 19 will usually need to pay for tuition, exam and registration fees.
Payment is due at enrolment. Instalment plans are available. For Further Education courses at levels 3, 4, 5 and 6, you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan
You may be eligible for tuition fee remission depending on:
- The type and level of the course
- Student age at the start of the course
- Previously achieved qualifications
- Employment/unemployment status
Full details of course fees and the criteria for fee remission are usually confirmed in June. We will then inform applicants of the price of their full-time course and contact them to arrange a fee assessment to discuss fees due, eligibility for fee remission and any other financial help which may be available.
Students who have not lived in the EU/EEA for the last 3 years may have to pay a higher fee. Eligibility will be checked when you apply for a course.
