Course Fees

The fees information shown below relates to entry onto the course in September 2014.

Course Fee (2014/15): £18,500

The School of Artisan Food has a number of options available to help students with their fees, including Professional and Career Development Loans (PCDL) and bursaries.

The PDCL allows you to borrow between £300 and £10,000 to be used to pay towards course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses.  You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries. The Government will pay the interest on the loan while you study.  On completion of the Advanced Diploma you will then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loans product.

For further information visit https://www.gov.uk/career-development-loans/overview   Our learning provider registration number is: 21067

We can discuss the PDCL and other financial support at the interview stage of the application process.
