Tuition Fees

The cost of a course, known as a tuition fee, varies depending on which course you choose to take and whether you study full-time or part-time. Tuition fees contribute to the cost of a course, and include paying for staff, facilities and equipment. All universities and colleges charge a tuition fee each year for higher education courses; for 2013/14 and 2014/15, the government set a maximum charge of £9,000 a year for UK and EU students.

The College of West Anglia currently charges £8,240 per year in tuition fees for its full time degree courses (part time courses are pro-rata, £4120).

Fees for our HNC courses are currently £3,500 per year; our HNC and HND courses are not eligible for any student loans.

If you are a UK or EU student, studying your first higher education course, you can get a government loan for your tuition fees.

Student Loans

To obtain the most recent information on funding arrangements, you should contact Student Finance England (SFE). Both our full-time and part-time students may be eligible for student loans.

You will need to contact SFE as soon as you know that you are planning to enrol on a part-time or full-time undergraduate course even if, at that stage, you are unsure of the institution where you wish to study.
