How much funding will I get?

Fee-paying or salaried?

We offer two training routes: fee-paying or salaried. For fee-paying courses you pay a tuition fee for the year, just like a university degree – you can apply for a student loan to cover this and living costs. Depending on the subject you train in and your degree you could receive a scholarship or bursary of up to £28,000 to meet these costs.

On salaried courses you receive the same pay as a non-qualified teacher during your training - but the numbers of these places are limited.

Fees and funding

The tuition fee for 2018/19 is £9,000. If you need help covering the tuition fee or require a maintenance loan please visit www.gov.uk/student-finance for further information. 

You could also qualify for a scholarship or bursary of up to £28,000 dependant on your degree subject and qualification; please see the 2019/20 figures below.

Maths trainees could receive up to £15,000 (after tax) in early-career payments once they are in the profession - £5,000 after three years and an additional £5,000 after five years, with an extra £2,500 in each payment for certain local authorities. See the Gov.uk website for further details.

When to apply for finance

We would strongly recommend that you apply for student finance at an early stage to ensure funding; you do not need a confirmed place on a programme to do this. You can use your first choice of course to submit your application and update this later if you need to.
