Investing in your future is more affordable than you might think. As some of the most affordable higher education courses in the UK, we offer a range of flexible payment options to suit your circumstances.

Is your company helping you?

Studying on an academic programme is an effective way for you to develop your knowledge and skills, so your employer may be willing to pay for all, or part, of your studies. They may also be willing to loan you the money so you can pay it back in monthly instalments.

Borrow it from your company:

It’s 20% cheaper by getting your employer to lend you the net price. You can then pay them back through your salary.Please get in touch for a help sheet on this.

100% Company sponsorship:

Let us know the purchase order number and we will do the rest.

Part company sponsorship:

We need the company funding up front and your monthly plan starts straight away, either to us or to your company.You can also pay the balance up front if you prefer not to use our interest free instalment plan.

Are you paying for yourself? Student Finance:

Depending on your circumstances and location, grants or loans are available to part-time students. Contact us for more information.
