At Stratford-upon-Avon College, you get proven high quality education in a supportive environment and with competitive course fees. This webpage provides financial support information for our higher education courses.
Our tuition fees may vary depending on the course, and the tuition fee can be found on the relevant course page on our website. Whichever course you choose to study, you will get value for money and most students will be eligible for financial support.
Paying for your course
You may choose to pay for your course yourself instead of taking out a Tuition Fee Loan. All self-funded students can pay in full at enrolment or arrange with the Finance team at the College to pay in instalments. Please contact the College for further information.
If you are working, and your employer is paying for your tuition fees, your employer must supply written confirmation of sponsorship at enrolment. The confirmation must be on Company headed paper, be unconditional, state the name of the learner & course, and signed by an authorised signatory (not the learner).
You don’t have to pay for your course up front – you can get a loan to cover the cost of your tuition, which you start to pay back only when you are earning over £21,000 a year.
Repaying Your Loans
- You start to pay back only when you are earning over£21,000 a year.
- You repay 9% of your income above £21,000. So, for example, if your salary was £25,000, the 9% would apply to £4,000 only, meaning you would repay £30 per month.
- If your salary falls below £21,000, your repayments stop – for example if you take a career break or are unemployed. Repayments start again only when you earn over £21,000.
- Loan repayments will be deducted from your salary, normally through the tax system.
Please note that all information on government funding may be subject to change. Stratford-upon-Avon College reserves the right to change its fees as required.
