Funding, support and finance plans

Whether you are looking to self-fund, asking for employer sponsorship or seeking local funding, we have a range of options tailored to suit your needs.


Many companies are happy to fund the cost of their employee's professional development.

If your employer has agreed to support your studies, you can select 'invoice my employer' when you enrol, and they will be able to approve your enrolment instantly, at the click of a button.

You can spread the cost across the duration of your course (provided it is less than 12 months) with manageable monthly repayments.


If you are funding your studies yourself, the easiest and quickest way to pay for your course is to enrol online and pay in full by debit or credit card before your course starts. Alternatively, you can spread the cost of your course using one of our interest-free payment plans.

Interest-free instalment plans

Payment plans are available for all courses, regardless of the mode of delivery. You can spread the cost across the duration of your course (provided it is less than 12 months), with manageable monthly repayments.

We will set out the payment schedule upfront during the online enrolment process - simply select the course you wish to enrol for and begin completing the application process.

Contact us if you would like to enquire about alternative arrangements.
