We recognise that one of our strengths is adapting to the needs of our future trainee teachers. Therefore, we are pleased to be able to offer our fee-paying initial teacher training programmes as QTS only programmes for the fee of £7,200, alongside our PGCE programme. Our philosophy of teacher development is one rooted in a foundation of strong educational research so would always recommend that trainees embark on the full PGCE offer where appropriate to their context.

If you want to pay the fees via a student loan to you should apply to the Student Loan Company as soon as you have received your offer or when the SLC open the application cycle in January if later.

You may also be eligible for additional financial support in the form of a maintenance grant or maintenance loan depending on your income. Further details can be found here https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-my-teacher-training/tuition-fee-and-maintenance-loans
