Fee and Cost Information
Course (Tuition) fees
All full time courses are free if you are under the age of 19 on the 31st August of the year that your chosen full time course starts. You won’t be expected to pay any tuition, examination or registration costs.
Additional course costs
Some courses will require additional fees/costs which may include:
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Full details of these are included within each of the course listings. However, if you are concerned about paying these please speak in confidence to one of our Student Services team who will be able to advise about the financial support available.
To help you get to College we have an extensive network of College coaches and minibuses to bring you into College.
The annual cost for transport is reviewed each year. For students studying on a full-time course in 2020/21 it is £600 for the year. If you are aged 16 – 18 years old and live more than three miles from us, you can sign up to receive subsidised travel from the local authority. Information about how to do this will be given to you during your interview. Financial support to help with travel costs is available for some students (see below).
All of our accommodation for students aged 16-18 is located at our Moulton campus and includes breakfast and an evening meal (half-board). You will need to pay an initial deposit of £200 plus a fee for testing of your electrical equipment (PAT testing) of £25. You will then be charged an annual fee. For students staying with us in 2020/21 the annual rent charges are:
- £5,530 for a single room with half-board
- £4,505 for a shared room with half-board
Please note that these are subject to change for the 2021/22 academic year.
Financial Assistance & Bursary Information
If you are a Further Education student under the age of 19 on 31 August of the year your full time course starts, you can get access to financial support for essential course related costs such as transport, accommodation, course uniform/PPE or childcare. The funding is available if you are from a low income family, i.e. annual household income of £28,000 or less.
In addition, College meals are free if you are on one of a number of listed state benefits including Income Support.
To access this funding, you will need to apply to our Student Services team.
Vulnerable Student Bursary
If you are aged 16-18 and meet one of the categories below you are entitled to a Bursary of up to £1,200:
- A young person in care, including unaccompanied asylum-seeking children
- A young care leaver
- A young person getting Income Support or the equivalent Universal Credit (UC) in their own right
- A young person getting either Disability Living Allowance (or the new Personal Independence Payments) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA) (or Universal Credit as a replacement for ESA) in their own right.
Charitable Trust Bursaries
We are very fortunate that two independent charitable trusts - Thomas Harrison Trust and Sir Thomas White Charity - provide financial support to allow students experiencing financial difficulties to attend College. Trustees are willing to consider applications from any student undertaking a full-time FE course here at Moulton.
You will be sent an application form with your course joining instructions and should complete and return it at that stage.
