How much does it cost?
Tuition fee depends on the course that you want to take. Our Further Education courses are FREE for eligible learners. Our Higher Education courses can be paid by tuition fee loan through Student Finance. Maintenance loan for living cost is also available for our higher education students. Please read below or more information.
What's a Tuition Fee Loan?
A Tuition Fee Loan helps you to pay for your course. New full-time students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £9,000 to cover the cost of tuition fees. The amount you can get doesn't depend on your household income.
The course for (1 year) here at City College is £7,000. If you have applied for SFE (Student Finance England) before for a HIGHER education level (e.g. you already have a B.A. Degree from a University) you might not be eligible for Student Finance again. However, you can check this by calling SFE and explaining your situation.
What's a Maintenance Loan?
A Maintenance Loan helps towards your living costs, such as food, rent and books. The amount you can borrow depends on your household income, your course and where you live and study.
For academic session 2022-23
- You can get up to £8,171 a year if you live with your parents.
- You can get up to £9,706 a year if you live away from home and study outside London.
- You can get up to £12,667 a year if you live away from home and study in London.
- You can get up to £11,116 a year if you study overseas as part of your course.
If you're 60 or over on the first day of the first academic year of your course you can apply for up to £4,106.
Repayments are based on your future income, not what you borrow. You won't repay your loan until you have left the college and your income is over £27,295 a year.
If you're employed, repayments will be deducted from your income (the same as it is with tax and national insurance contributions).
You'll repay 9% of your income over £27,295 a year. So, if you earn £28,800 a year this means you'll repay 9% of £2,274 – or £11 a month.
If you're self-employed, separate arrangement s are in place with HMRC to make your repayments.
If you stop working or your income drops below £27,295 your repayments wills top and only start again when your income is over £27,295 a year. After 30 years, any outstanding balance will be written off, unless you have defaulted on your loan.
