Self-funding

Students can fund their postgraduate study from savings or use money made available from family.

Students are encouraged to approach employers, who may be able to fund the study, normally this will depend on the added value you may be able to offer your employer, once you complete your study.

Students often combine working with their study, we have many students who work either full time and study part time or work and study part time.

The following options are available to all students whose fees are £500 or more. Please note that international students are required to pay 50% of fees due for the first instalment at enrolment to qualify for either option.

Option 1 – Pay 25 per cent of fees at enrolment plus three Direct Debit payments

Students MUST pay the first instalment at enrolment plus any other course fees due, i.e. registration or residential fees etc. and complete and submit a direct debit mandate with their payment when enrolling.

Option 2 – Pay 25 per cent of fees at enrolment plus six Direct Debit payments
