Fee-PAYING ROUTE - QTS WITH PGCE
Tuition Fee Payments
The tuition fee for the year is £9,250.
If you are applying for a loan from the Student Loans Company, your tuition fees will be paid automatically to us and you will pay them back, according to a pre-determined schedule, once you are employed and earning over the minimum salary threshold.
If you are not applying for a tuition fee loan then you will need to pay your tuition fees directly to us. We ask for this in 4 instalments, making it easier for you to pay.
The tuition fee is the same for international applicants. However, all applicants must have the right to work / study in the UK in order to qualify for our programme.
Most applicants applying for many of our secondary subjects through our fee-paying route are eligible for bursaries of up to £34,000 through the Department for Education. If your subject is eligible, and we offer you a place, you would receive a tax-free sum of money paid in ten monthly instalments throughout the year from October to July.

Scholarships are also available from several public bodies for applicants of Modern Languages, Physics, Chemistry, Computing and Geography. These prestigious awards top up the government bursaries and also provide other training benefits. You would receive this amount in 10 instalments from October to July of your training year.
In addition, for Modern Languages, Maths, Physics and Chemistry you would also receive an early careers payment of £6,000. This would be paid to you in instalments over the three years after you have successfully completed your teacher training course, provided that you are still teaching your subject in the UK.
They are aimed at high quality graduates with a 2:1 or above, who are passionate about their subject and have the potential to be inspirational teachers. Once you have secured a place with us, you would be able to apply for a Scholarship through one of these institutions. You will go through their rigorous application process to secure additional funding.
