Payment of Fees

Payment of Fees

Payment of all fees (tuition and/or awarding body costs) is due in full at enrolment and is not refundable unless the course is cancelled by the College. If the learner withdraws before the course starts, there will be a £15 refund charge.  All fees relate to the 2015/16 year only, further fees are payable in the following year if the course is over one year in length.

  • Courses up to 15 weeks in length: payment required in full
  • Total course fee is less than £100: payment required in full
  • Course is longer than 15 weeks and the total fee payable is greater than £100: Instalment plan via direct debit available, administration charge of £15 to be added to the full cost of course. Fees are payable on the basis of 25% plus the £15 charge at time of enrolment and then by 3 equal instalments over the following 3 consecutive months to clear the remaining balance. Students must bring bank details with them at the time of enrolment (This payment facility is not available for full cost recovery courses).
  • Firm/employer to pay course fees: Letter of authority required from the student’s employer confirming that course costs, registration fees, etc. can be invoiced to them. A purchase order from the employer may be required. The instalment option is not available to employers. If the employer withdraws funding the fees are payable by the learner.

Payment of fees can be by cash, credit card or debit card. Cheques are only accepted from employers. International students can also pay by bank transfer – further details upon request.

Students aged 24 years and over who are studying for a level 3 or above course are not eligible for fee remission or Government supported fees and can apply for a 24+ Advanced Learning loan.

All Higher education courses are longer than one year and fees relate to each year not the total course, fees are also published on the UCAS website.

All course and fee information advertised on and in documents, on the website or in leaflets or adverts may be subject to change without notice. Fees advertised are the Government Support fees, the 24+ loans attract a higher fee reflecting that this is not Government supported, these fees are available on the Student Loans Company website or from our Student Services Area.
