Doing a Degree-level course?

When you sign up for a degree level course you will be required to supply two forms of ID, one to confirm your address and one which includes a photo card (both IDs must be brought to enrolment). Acceptable forms of ID are: driving licence photo card; passport; student loan/grant confirmation letter; bank or government agency certificate or ID; utility bill.

If you are self-funding your course you will need to either pay the fees in full at enrolment or pay a deposit and set up an instalment plan for the remainder of the fees.

If you have applied for a Tuition Fee Loan you will need to produce the University or College Payment Advice letter. This is a letter sent to you from Student Finance England stating that they will be paying the fees on your behalf. Should you not be able to provide the letter from Student Finance England we will need your Customer Reference Number in order to process your enrolment.

Note: A Direct Debit instalment plan is available to Home Status Students attending further and higher education courses. Please remember to bring your bank details with you.

Community and hobby programmes

When you enrol on a community and hobby programme, you will be required to pay the full cost of your course when you sign up. Payments can be made by cash, cheque or credit/debit card.
