How much will it cost?
Don’t worry about the cost of learning! We can help and advise you. 16-18 year-olds do not have to pay tuition fees on FE courses and if you would have been eligible for EMA, you may now receive a bursary. Transport for London student travel cards are available, giving discounts to 16-18s. If you’re aged 18-23, many courses are FREE or DISCOUNTED. If you’re aged 24 or over and enrolling on an approved level 3 or higher further education course, you can get a government loan to cover the tuition cost of your course. You don’t start paying back this loan until you earn a minimum of £21,000 per year – and the amount you are charged depends on how much you earn. Visit the ‘Fees’ section of our website which is found under the ‘Supporting you’ tab at the top of this page for more information.
How do I enrol?
If you are a full fee payer, you can enrol at certain times throughout the year by telephoning 020 7613 9116. Check our website www.hackney.ac.uk for details of when you can enrol by phone. Everyone can enrol in person at the Shoreditch Campus during term time, in rooms A212/A214, Monday-Friday, 10am – 6pm. Please ring 020 7613 9350/9208 for further enrolment details.
