The tuition fees for degree courses have increased from 2018/19, however the University Centre is using the increase in income to fund new initiatives to support students to enrol, to be successful and to progress to positive destinations.
The University Centre is using the income from higher fees for:
- A £500 Bursary Scheme which will be available for disadvantaged first-year (Level 4) students to access if attendance and progress meets targets.
- An increase to the HE Hardship Fund to support a broader range of students in different financial situations – including support for the cost of assessments for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) applications and the cost of equipment provided through DSA.
Full details of the way the University Centre is spending this money are available in the Access Agreement 2018/19, available on the College website.
Tuition fees for full-time higher education courses in 2018/19 are:
- £7,000 for HNC, HND and foundation degree (FD) courses
- £8,000 for BA (Hons) top-up degree courses
The increased fee will only apply to new students. If you are a current student enrolled on a two-year foundation degree or HND course in 2017/18 then you will be charged the same fee as your first year.
