If you are on a postgraduate School Direct course which is not salaried, you will have to pay tuition fees. The tuition fee for all of our School Direct subjects is the same and this year the tuition fee for the year is set at £9K. For this you will receive both QTS and PGCE. Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of this tuition fee. This is available through Student Finance England, who can also be contacted about maintenance loans which are available dependent upon your personal financial circumstances.
You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments on the GOV.UK website.
Most subjects attract a tax free training bursary, please see the table below.
