A few local educational authorities may award grants to meet part of the cost. Early enquiries should be made as grants are extremely limited.


Before applying for a full-time course, it is essential you establish your financial situation and determine how to cover the costs involved. Contact the centre you’re considering studying at for details of course fees, which can vary significantly depending on the course chosen.


In addition to these, there are subsistence costs, travel, exam fees and textbooks to be considered.


Career Development Loans may also be available. Contact your local careers office or job centre. For postgraduate courses at universities apply directly to the university. For degree courses, apply through UCAS.
