Tuition fees for part-time Higher Education learners
Tuition fees for part-time courses can be paid in their entirety at enrolment or by instalments (providing the course fees are over £300). If your employer or sponsor is paying your fees, you will be required to bring a letter from your employer / sponsor to that effect to your enrolment session.
Tuition Fee Loans are available for learners studying courses with at least 25% intensity (30 credits) when compared to a full time course, providing they have not previously studied a Higher Education course at the same or at a higher level. Learners taking out the tuition fee loan will be required to begin repayments in the April four years after the start of your course or the April after you leave your course – whichever comes first. However, you will only start making repayments when you are earning at least £21,000. Repayments are only based on your income above £21,000 and will be automatically deducted from your salary. If you are using a tuition fee loan to pay for your tuition fees you will be required to bring in your financial notification documentation from the SLC to the enrolment session. Visit www.studentfinancewales.co.uk for details.
If you are studying at a course intensity of at least 50% (60 credits) you can apply for a non-repayable course grant. This is means tested and is dependent of household income but you can get up to £1,155 (*based on 14/15 figures). You may also be eligible for extra financial help if you meet certain criteria. Visit www.studentfinancewales.co.uk for details.
Please note, it is important that you make an application for financial assistance towards your tuition fees to the appropriate body prior to enrolment onto your course. Failure to apply for funding or providing alternative means of payment will result in the college invoicing you for the fees. Learners are liable for any part of the fees not paid by the above bodies. If you withdraw from the college, you will be liable for the payment of fees up until the final term you attended.
