Will I pay fees?

In the current climate, we appreciate the cost of courses and training is important but did you know that you may be entitled to FREE or subsidised study, even if you are working?*

Our team of specialist advisers can access a wide range of funding to help you pay for the cost of tuition fees, equipment, kit, travel expenses and even childcare! The amount of funding can vary and will depend upon your circumstances (household income) and course of study.*

If you don’t hold a GCSE in Maths and/or English at Grade 4 (C ) or above, you can study either subject for FREE.*

Remember, it’s always worth checking with our team to see what support you could be entitled to, as the rules and guidance can be complex.

Full advice on fees and funding can be accessed by contacting the advice and information team on 01772 225522 or by email to: or by attending one of our Adult Advice and Information Events.

If you don’t qualify for funding, there are a range of options available to adult learners at Preston College, which may help you to pay for your course. Further details can be found here.
