The Skills Funding Agency (SFA) subsidises our courses, even when a full fee is payable.
There are three fees for most courses:
• Standard fee for residents of the UK or other EU countries.
• Concessionary fee for:
– non-accredited courses
The Skills Funding Agency will only fund tuition fees for those on benefits (see below for details). However, H&F adult learning and skills service will still continue to help you financially if you have been a UK or EU resident for the past three years and are claiming any of the following:
For UK or EU residents in receipt of Active Benefits (JSA or ESA WRAG and Universal Credit mandated to work or training) there are no fees on some accredited courses. Look out for the (F) – it means the course is free.
If you are unemployed and are in receipt of any other type of benefit (see ‘Help with fees’ opposite for full details) and believe the course will help you find employment then the course may also be free for you.
Full Fee – if you have not been resident in the UK or EU for the previous three years a higher fee will be charged. Please ask as this varies depending on the course.
If only one fee is shown for the course, there are no concessions. Most fees include basic equipment but you may need to buy additional materials.
Level 3 courses – we are unable to offer concessions for level 3 courses, please ask at interview about sources of funding.
If you are under 19 Our courses leading to qualifications are designed for adults and we receive no funding for under 19s. If you are under 19 and interested in doing a course please contact us for further information.
Exam fees and equipment For most qualification courses the exam fee and basic equipment are included in the published fee. Please ask at interview.
Full fees For details of fees for overseas learners please ask at reception or call: 020 8753 3600
