If you are aged 16-18 and a UK resident you shouldn’t have to pay anything for your tuition fees
There are various schemes to help you with the costs of travelling to and from college, for purchasing any books or equipment and to assist with the cost of study visits/residentials.
Students aged 19 or above may have to pay course fees which can be paid before the course starts or by instalments over the duration of an academic year. Some students over 19 may qualify for ‘tuition fee remission’ from the Skills Funding Agency (SFA). Visit the fee information page to see if you qualify for fee remission.
