Funding for Higher Education

Full-time Fees

The College will charge a fee of £9,000 per annum for undergraduate students, £7,200 per annum for HND and HNC students and £6,000 for postgraduate students who start their first higher education course at the college in September 2018. Students who started their courses in previous academic years will continue to pay the same fee as when they started.

Part-time Fees

The College will charge £1,500 per 20 credits for Foundation Degree and BSc (Hons) Degree modules and £670 for per 20 credits of study for MSc modules if you start your course in September 2018. The most common pattern is for students to study 80 credits a year, so if you study 80 credits per year, it will take you three years to complete a foundation degree in comparison to two years for a full-time student. The annual fee for our new HNC and HND courses is £2,400 per annum. Students who have started study in previous academic years will continue to pay fees at the same rate as when they started.
