All of our higher education courses are eligible for either a Student Loan or 24+ Advanced Learning Loan. This means you don't have to start paying for your course until after you have completed your study and are earning £21,000 per year. Financial support is also available from the College.

The College works in partnership with key universities and awarding bodies including Oxford Brookes University, Edexcel and AAT to deliver its HE programmes.
