Tuition fees need to be paid by you or your employer unless you are eligible for fees remission (free fees). Where a course is for more than one academic year, tuition fees are payable each year.
Where a course is for more than one academic year, and an HE course then tuition fees are payable each year. All other multi-year courses will need to be paid in a maximum of 12 instalments or before the end date of your course, whichever is earliest.
Some courses do require you to buy equipment and this will be advised when you speak to Student Services. If your employer is paying your fees, please provide a letter from them stating that they will be responsible for all tuition and awarding body fees with an order number where required for invoicing.
Payment can be made by cash, by cheque, debit card or credit card and there are no charges for using your card to pay. The following cards can be accepted: Visa, Visa Debit and Mastercard. Easy payment terms are available.
The college offers an instalment plan if your course fees are over £150. The number of instalments available depends on the cost and the length of your course and you will be asked to leave a deposit. All fees must be paid one month before the course end date. Contact us for more information.
Please note that once enrolled on a course, all fees will be payable in line with the Groups Fees policy even if you withdraw from your course.
If you have already paid for your course fees and need to amend your card details for an upcoming instalment, please use the following link: Update card details here
