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.

We are a Professional and Career Development Loans registered Learning Provider, registration number [21067]. A Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial bank loan that you can use to help pay for work-related learning. For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit the GOV.UK website or contact the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900.

On completion of the Advanced Diploma you will then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loans product.

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