Costs

Tuition Fees (2018-19)

Home/EU: £9,250
Islands/Overseas: £25,200 plus college membership fee  

Colleges also charge a membership fee but the University will pay this for Home/EU trainees who are eligible for government funding (ie. tuition fee loan or maintenance loan). All trainees are expected to pay a small contribution towards the cost of provided facilities and a college registration fee.


Student Finance 

Home students are eligible to apply for a tuition fee loan (£9250) and a maintenance loan for living costs (up to £8430).

If you are a mature student with dependents you may also be entitled to grant payments for your dependents.

EU students are eligible for a tuition fee loan.

Islands students should apply for funding support from the relevant government department. You will be asked to complete a financial guarantee before starting the PGCE, to show that you are able to pay your fees in full.

Overseas students (from non EU countries) are not usually eligible for tuition fee support. Your College will ask you to complete a financial guarantee before starting the PGCE, and you may be asked to provide evidence to show that you are able to pay your fees in full and support yourself for the duration of the course.


Training Bursary & Scholarships

UK, EU and Islands trainees on certain PGCE courses are eligible to receive a government bursary. The amount of the bursary depends upon the subject in which they train and their undergraduate/highest degree result.  

Trainees do not need to apply for the bursary as this is arranged by the Faculty on their behalf. 

Trainees undertaking a Secondary PGCE in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Geography or Modern Languages with a 2:1 and above, who are passionate about their subject and have the potential to be inspirational teachers, may be eligible for a scholarship with the appropriate professional body. As well as the financial award, scholars will receive a package of additional benefits provided by the professional bodies. Scholarships are paid instead of the bursary, not in addition to it.

Further details of both bursaries and scholarships are available of the DfE website
