Fees and dates are based on academic year 2019-20 and are intended as a guide only. We will update the fees and dates for 2020-21 as soon as we have them and according to government funding and guidelines.
The Government funds and regulates adult Further Education and skills training in England. They pay a proportion of the cost to deliver the course and expect the student, or a sponsor, to pay the remaining portion. This is referred to as the ‘tuition fees’ and is what we display on our guide. If a course or a learner is not eligible for government funding the Full Cost /international fees will be liable. Please refer to our International fees page for more information.
