  • £30.00 on application (if applicable)

  • If you finish sooner than your planned 12 months you will need to settle any outstanding fees in full for us to enter you for Moderation so you can get your Certificate. If it becomes clear part way through the course that you will finish early we will adjust your target completion date, and therefore your monthly instalments, accordingly.

Access Diploma in less than 12 months

Total = £1247.00.
  • If you take longer than the number of months you planned to complete, you will not need to pay further monthly tuition fees unless you take longer than 12 months. Alternatively, if it becomes clear part way through the course that it is going to take you longer to complete than you initially planned, we can agree with you to adjust your target completion date which will lower the monthly instalments accordingly but may also exceed the maximum study days, at which point the Monthly Extension Fee of £78.00 per month becomes applicable.
  • If you finish sooner than your planned 12 months you will need to settle any outstanding fees in full for us to enter you for Moderation so you can get your Certificate. If it becomes clear part way through the course that you will finish early we will adjust your target completion date, and therefore your monthly instalments, accordingly.
