Q
How do I apply for a part-time course?

Application procedures vary from school to school, and sometimes from course to course.

You may apply at any time during the year right up to the starting date of the course. However, courses have limited places and to avoid disappointment you should apply early.

You may be required to complete an application form and possibly attend an interview. If selected, you will receive a written offer of a place together with instructions on how to enrol and join the course.

Alternatively, you may be invited to enrol directly, either by completing a postal enrolment form or by attending an enrolment session. In such cases there is no guarantee that a place will be available to you until you have completed enrolment.

Whatever form the application process takes, all entrants are required to enrol and pay the relevant tuition fee (see Financial information for part-time students) before they are permitted to attend classes.

The decision that we make about your application and your fee status is based on the information provided on your application form. If we find that you have made a false statement or have left out significant information, we reserve the right either to withdraw or amend our offer, or to amend your fee status.

Q
How are fee payments made? Can I pay in instalments?

Fees above a certain amount (currently £450 per academic year) can be paid in instalments. Home and EU students may only pay instalments by Direct Debit. International students can read about their fee payment options here.

The number of instalments can vary depending on the amount of the fees – generally, if the fees are above £450 and below £3,300 you would need to make a minimum payment of one-third of fees at enrolment, plus any residential, registration or other fees if applicable. The remaining balance will be collected by two equal Direct Debit payments.

For annual fees of over £3,300, you would need to pay a minimum payment of £1,000 at enrolment, plus any residential, registration or other fees if applicable. The balance is payable by six equal Direct Debit payments.
