Study Now - Pay Later
In response to COVID-19, or coronavirus, we have all been encouraged to practice social distancing which means more time away from work, family and friends.
We understanding that committing to funding a programme of study in such uncertain times is a concern, so we have introduced a Study Now - Pay Later scheme.
This scheme is available to both privately funded students and sponsored students.
We require a £150 deposit to register you as a student and the balance can be paid in full in 6 months' time or by 3 monthly instalments starting in 3 months' time.
If in 3 or 6 months time you feel you are not in a position to pay the balance or start paying instalments, you will have the option to withdraw from the programme or suspend your studies for up to 12 months.
To apply simply select the Study Now - Pay Later option and complete the checkout process.
