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 - that's £250 less than most university-based courses. If you need help covering the tuition fee or require a maintenance loan please visit 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 2018/19 figures below.
