Some fee remission may be available, and applicants are encouraged to make individual enquiries in their local geographical area.
Additional fee information:
1. If eligible for co funding (part government funded and part cost to yourself) the fee payable is £632.50 tuition and £96.80 awarding body registration fee (total £729.30).
2. If eligible for full funding (fully funded by the government) then there will be no fee payable by the student. This in employment/self-employed and the gross annual earnings fall below the 2023/24 government guidelines threshold (currently approx £18,525), for which evidence is required e.g. payslips/contract). Similarly, if unemployed and in receipt of an eligible benefit, full funding may be available.
3. If not eligible for any government funding, then the fee payable is £2,176.00. This may be due to a home address being within a ‘devolved area’ (a Mayoral Combined Authority is where funding is devolved to local authorities), or if the applicant has already received funding to study the qualification previously.
