We will be charging a tuition fee of £9000 for all teacher training programmes being delivered in the academic year 2017/18. You may be eligible for a maintenance grant or special support but this will be determined by the Student Loan Company when you make application for your tuition fee loan.

Funding for teacher training is available for eligible graduates who are starting their training in the 2017/18 academic year on postgraduate routes.
Funding amounts will vary depending on the subject you intend to teach and your degree classification or highest relevant academic qualification

You also need to be eligible for a bursary based on your nationality and residency status.
