Payment of Fees

FE Full Time

  • A non-refundable enrolment fee of £40 is payable in full at enrolment.
  • Where the total course material fee is under £150, learners must pay in full at enrolment.
  • Where the balance exceeds £150 and the course is of 10 weeks’ duration or more, instalment payments are available. In this case the learner must supply a signed direct debit mandate on enrolment.

FE Part Time & Apprenticeship Infill Courses

In order to secure a place, and where applicable, all part time learners must pay a portion of fees in advance of the start of the course.

  • Where the total course fee is under £350, learners must pay in full at enrolment.
  • Where the balance exceeds £350 and the course is of 10 weeks’ duration or more, instalment payments are available. In this case the learner must supply a signed direct debit mandate on enrolment.

Course cancellation/rescheduling

If the college cancels a course, or the course does not start due to a lack of support, every effort will be made to offer an alternative. If no suitable alternative is available, a full refund will be given. If the college reschedules a course for a different time, day or change of site and this is not convenient for the learner, a full refund will be given.

Refunds/credits relating to illness

If a learner becomes ill during the period of their course, they may apply for a refund if the condition is permanent and prevents them from returning. If the condition is temporary, they may apply for a credit which will permit them to re-enrol at a later date (credits are valid for 2 years from date of issue). The refund or credit will be calculated on a pro-rata basis from the date of the last class attended. Medical evidence will be required in the form of a doctor’s note or equivalent.

Methods of payment

Payment can be made online or at campus reception by cash, cheque or debit/credit card.

Non-payment of course fees

Learners who do not pay their course fees may be asked to leave their course. Failure to pay any charges made to learners by the college for any goods or services provided will result in court action being taken to recover the sums outstanding. Debts may be passed to a debt recovery agency for collection.

Failure to pay course fees may also lead to exclusion from examinations until all outstanding fees have been paid.  The College also retains the right to withhold certificates until all debts have been paid
