Fees

If you are aged 16-18 on 31 August 2018, a British or European Union resident and looking to study at Level 2 and Level 3, the tuition fees and any exam registration fees are FREE, except Access to Higher Education courses where a fee may be charged.

If you are aged 19 to 23 on 31 August 2018 and looking to study your first full-time Level 2 or Level 3 qualification, the tuition fee will be free. If you are aged 19 or above on 31 August 2018 and already have a Level 3 qualification or if you are aged 24 or over, you will need to pay a fee. You may be eligible to apply for an Advanced Leaner Loan. This will be dependent on the Level 3 programme you choose to study.
