Our current course fees for courses starting in 2024 / 2025 are:
We offer full-time courses which are either validated or accredited by Anglia Ruskin University. All of these courses are full-time.
Our full-time tuition fee is £9,000 for the 2024 / 2025 academic year.
We currently offer part-time education degrees accredited by University of Huddersfield.
Our tuition fee for these courses is £3,775 for the 2024 / 2025 academic year.
We offer HNC courses in Engineering which are delivered part-time over two years.
Our course fee for the whole HNC qualification is £7,000.
We set our course fees annually. As students pay a fee for each year of their course, the fees set for future academic years may be higher than those set in the 2024 / 2025 academic year (excluding HNC courses, where the whole fee is set prior).
For each future academic year of your course of study, your fees may be subject to review and increase on a basis in line with the Retail Prices Index (RPI) plus 3%. RPI is a measure of inflation published monthly by the Office for National Statistics which measures the changes from month to month in the cost of a representative sample of retail goods and services bought by consumers within the UK. This means that your course fees will not be increased each year by more than RPI + 3% from the previous year’s fees and will not ever exceed the maximum amount that the government allows higher education institutions to charge students in the related academic year.
All student finance applications are made to our partnership universities (Anglia Ruskin University for full-time degrees and University of Huddersfield for part-time education and teaching degrees). Our HNC courses are not eligible for student finance.

Tuition Fee Loan
The tuition fee loan covers your tuition fees. It is paid directly to the university centre each year of study. You can find full details on how to apply for student finance here.
The maintenance loan helps with living costs and is paid into your bank account at the start of each term. The amount you can borrow depends on your circumstances – you can complete the student finance calculator on the Student Finance website to estimate your maintenance loan. You can find full details on how to apply for student finance here.
You may be able to receive a tuition fee loan if your part-time course has a ‘course intensity’ of 25% or more. ‘Course intensity’ measures how much of your course you complete each year, compared to an equivalent full-time course. For further details, please see the student finance website here.
Higher National Certificate courses
There is no funding or student finance available for our Higher National Certificate/Diploma (HNC/HND) courses. Whilst employers tend to fund these courses, you are able to pay the full annual fee at enrolment or split the cost into three equal termly installments.
