Funding your course

Information about fees

Fees and funding for university-level courses are different to the other types of courses we offer at the college.

Student loans are still available. Loans are not repaid until you earn over £27,295 per year and student loan interest rates are low. Most repayments start as low as £5 per month and stop if your salary ever falls below £27,295 or you become unemployed.

At West Notts College, we have taken the decision to keep our fees as low as possible.

Our fees for 2021/2022 courses are £3,800 per year for part-time courses and £6,165 per year for full-time courses.

This is significantly less than other colleges or universities who charge up to £9,250 per year.

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS). The OfS is the independent regulator for Higher Education in England.

Student loans

Most students choose to take out a student loan when choosing Higher Education to pay for course fees. These loans mean students do not need to pay anything upfront and will only repay loans when earning £27,295 or more.

Repayments for loans are based on income, not how much is initially borrowed.

Repayments will be 9% of a graduate’s income over £27,295 (for example, those earning £28,000 will repay £5 a month).
