Home and EU/EEA students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of our school direct tuition fees. The loan comes from Student Finance England and once agreed, means that you won’t have to pay the tuition fees up front in order to train with us. You will only start to repay the loan once you are in full time employment and earning over approximately £21,000 per year.
