Let’s Talk Money


There are two key elements to consider:

How much will it cost me to get my qualifications?

How much can I earn once I am qualified?


So let’s look at each one of these in more detail.

How much will it cost me to get my qualifications?


Student Finance

The cost to individual students will vary depending on where you choose to study, your individual finacial situation and the lifestyle you want to have.

Working to pay your way
