Fees and Charges

Students aged 16-18 and students who turn 19 whilst on a programme at college do not need to pay for their course.

Students 19 and over may be charged for their course depending on the level of the course, but the fees are waived if they are on means-tested benefits.


Students enrolling onto particular courses, such as health and social care, will be required to undertake a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check at enrolment. The cost for this is £20 (non-refundable). For more information about which students are required to undertake this check, and what evidence is required for it, please read the DBS page.
