If you're aged between 16-18 you won't need to pay any tuition or registration fees whilst you study with us. If you're aged 19 or over at the start of your course, then you may need to pay tuition, exam and/or registration fees.
If you are in receipt of certain benefits such as Job Seekers Allowance or Employment Support Allowance some of these fees may be waived. There may be some equipment for your course as explained under 'Other course costs'.
If you are aged 19 or over and studying a course recognised by the Skills Funding Agency at Level 3 or above, you may be able to get a loan to cover the full cost of the course. The loans aren't means tested and range from £300 upwards. Other charges for SFA Funded Further Education programmes will be outlined at enrolment if necessary click here to find out more about Advanced Learning Loans.
Some courses require you to have specialised personal equipment such as protective clothing, tools or a specific uniform to study them. Where this is the case you will be advised of the costs at enrolment. The equipment remains your property, and will continue to be of use to you as you continue in your career.
If you are unable to pay any of the fees/contributions outlined above you may be eligible to receive financial assistance from the BCoT Learner Support Fund. Advice and application forms are available from Student Welfare.
