Aged 16 – 18

Free for all courses

Aged 19 or over

You may have to pay fees, or take out an advanced learner loan to cover the cost of your course.

In some circumstances, course fees can be waived in part or in full, depending on your exact age, employment status or previous qualifications. If you are 19 or over, we recommend you contact the Student Support Team on 0115 993 2321 to discuss your personal situation.


Fees and charges apply each separate academic year, so as your circumstances change, you may become liable for fees. Bursaries may also be available depending on your financial situation – you can get more information from our Students Services team on 0115 993 2321.
