Fees & Funding

Course Cost / Tuition Fees

Tuition fees are free to everyone aged 16-18 (as of 31 August in the year in which the course starts), irrespective of the level of course to be studied.

If you are aged 19 or over, and studying a full-time level 1 or level 2 course, tuition fees are subject to funding allocation set by the Education and Skills Funding Agency and have yet to be agreed.

Costs for full-time level 3 courses and above will be considerably more, often running into several thousand pounds, but you can take out a loan for these courses.
