Fees & Funding
The tuition fees for this course are £9,250.
Tuition Fee Loan
You may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England. https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-student-finance.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Scholarships and Bursaries are available to trainees on fee-based teacher training courses in England that lead to the award of qualified teacher status.
Availability is dependent on the highest relevant academic award and the ITT subject. To receive a scholarship or bursary, trainees must be entitled to support under the Student Finance England criteria. Applicants with a degree from outside the UK should refer to the equivalency table to see if their degree is likely to attract a bursary, or should consult their chosen training provider.
Bursary Information has not yet been released for the academic year commencing September 2021 and bursary levels change from year to year depending on the national levels of teacher vacancies.
www.getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-my-teacher-training is a useful website for information on funding.
Graduates with a 2:1 and above can apply for a scholarship (if available) with the appropriate professional body. As well as the financial award, scholars will receive a package of additional benefits provided by the professional bodies.
Trainees with a 2:2 may be awarded a scholarship in exceptional circumstances, if they have significant relevant experience.
Trainees awarded a scholarship cannot also receive a bursary. Trainees who are not awarded a scholarship may be eligible for a bursary, if they meet the eligibility and qualification criteria.
