Tuition fees for full-time Higher Education students – academic year 2020/21
The College charges an annual tuition fee for higher education courses. Most students can apply for a repayable tuition fee loan of up to £9,000 for full-time courses. Students taking out the tuition fee loan will be required to begin repayments when you have finished your course and are earning at least £25,725 per year*. More information about repayments can be found on the relevant student funding website.
Tuition fees are not fixed for the duration of the course and may increase year-on-year.
Most students will be eligible for funding towards their tuition fees, providing they have not previously studied at higher education and meet other residency requirements. For any queries regarding eligibility, please contact the relevant funding body.
If you are using a tuition fee loan to pay for your tuition fees, you will be required to bring your financial notification documentation from the Student Loans Company (SLC) to the enrolment session. If you are paying the tuition fees yourself, you can either pay the full amount up front or pay in instalments if you wish. If you have a sponsor paying your fees, you will be required to bring a letter from your sponsor to this effect to the enrolment session.
There are loans and grants available to help you with living costs. The amount you can get depends on your household income and where you live. You may also be eligible for extra financial help if you meet certain criteria. More information can be gained by visiting the relevant websites.
