Fees & Funding

Course Cost / Tuition Fees

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

If you are 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. This will be agreed upon at a later term.

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. Please contact a member of our finance team, or refer to our adult and professional learners page for more information.
