Our high quality, fully supported courses are excellent value for money. Our fee structure is open and transparent and there are no hidden administration costs so you know exactly what is included. You can apply at any time and you don’t pay anything until after you have been accepted onto a course.

Our payment plans are designed to be simple and straightforward, allowing you to spread the cost of your course and to graduate without debt. Two of our plans allow you to benefit from a 5% discount on your course fees.

You can choose a payment plan to suit your personal circumstances so whether you would prefer to reduce the overall cost of your course, avoid future price increases or pay in manageable instalments, there is an option for you.

Pay as you study

This payment plan allows you to spread your course fees for each trimester over four or six monthly instalments. Depending on whether you are studying a standard 20 credit module or a 40 / 60 credit module that runs through more than one trimester we have four pay as you study plans for you.

Pay in September and save

Pay for all of the modules you are studying in an academic year and receive a 5% discount.

Example A :

Cost of each module is £750
- if you take 3 modules in the academic year (£750 x 3)

£2,250
Less 5% discount - £112.50
Total amount payable for the academic year (at enrolment in September) £2,137.50

NB: The 5% discount is only available if you are funding your studies yourself and enrolling on your course in September. We are unable to offer the discount if you are being sponsored by your employer, are in receipt of a loan or start your course in February or May. To take advantage of the discount simply deduct 5% from the full amount to be paid when making the payment.

Please note: The 'Pay in September and save' offer cannot be used in conjunction with the 'Discount if you pay in full' offer.

Discount if you pay in full

We review our course fees and apply an appropriate price increase at the beginning of each academic year. If you will be studying for more than one year, you can avoid these annual increases by paying for your entire course when you enrol. You'll also benefit from a 5% discount. 

Example - for a student:

By paying the total cost of your course at the point of enrolment, you would receive a 5% discount, reducing the total cost of a course costing £13,500, to £12,825 - a saving of over £675. To take advantage of the discount simply deduct 5% from the full amount to be paid when making the payment.

If for a course costing £13,500 we were to increase our fees by a little over 2% each year, or around £270, you could save around £810, assuming you took 3 years to complete your course. You are not required to make any further incremental payments. Combine this with your initial 5% discount and you could potentially save over £1,485.
