We operate both an early payment and full fee payment discount for our January and September intakes.

If you pay your full pathway course tuition fee in one payment, you will be eligible to receive a £500 discount.

Discount Guarantee

The discount guarantee does exactly what it says, and guarantees your fees in years 1, 2, 3 and 4 of your studies.

For example, if you receive a 10% scholarship/bursary/fee discount on your pathway fees, you will receive the same for destination course. The fee for your pathway course will be included in your offer letter. You will also receive a conditional offer for your destination course with the same % included.

This will apply for the duration of your studies. The fee guarantee applies to the September and January intakes.

Fee Guarantee Terms

  • The fee shall be included in your pathway course offer, and your main campus offer.
  • Fee increases based on annual inflation shall continue to apply.

Early payment discount

If you pay your fees in full by the following deadlines, you will be eligible to receive a £500 discount on your pathway course fees.
