Policy on additional costs

Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).

Scholarships/sponsorships

There are three types of Government funding available for teacher training:

  • tax-free bursary or scholarship;
  • tuition fee loan and maintenance loan;
  • extra financial support if you're a parent or have an adult dependant or a disability.

Depending on your circumstances you could receive all three.
