Fee remission
  • If you are in receipt of some state benefits you may be entitled to full or partial remission of tuition fees on some courses (evidence is required at enrolment). Further details can be obtained from the Adult Education Department
  • There is no fee remission on dance, exercise, music, singing or Saturday classes. There is no remission for examination fees.

Refunds: If we have to cancel a course because of low enrolment, a full refund will be given to students who have pre-enrolled.

Refunds cannot be given if you withdraw within 2 weeks of the start of any course or once the course has started.

A non-refundable administration fee of £20 per course is incorporated into all fees and is charged to all part time students, including those who qualify for full remission of tuition fees. This is not refundable to those who withdraw from a course before the actual start date.

Courses with fewer than the relevant minimum number of students may, at the discretion of the College, have the option of continuing on payment of a supplementary fee.

The College cannot guarantee that the courses listed in this prospectus will run, or that they will necessarily be repeated in future programmes.

Fees may be subject to change because of government funding reviews, which can happen at any time, or because of price changes made by awarding bodies. Current fees will always be confirmed at enrolment and updated here on our website as soon as we are aware of any changes.

No Smoking

The entire College is a no-smoking area and therefore smoking is forbidden anywhere on the College site, including the Leisure Centre. Students and tutors who wish to smoke should do so off the College site without causing a nuisance to members of the public or to nearby residents and businesses.
