We've introduced payment by instalments for courses costing over £300. To find out more, call 0345 120 0044 email info@eastridingcollege.ac.uk or submit an inquiry. Fees for courses costing less than £300 are payable at the time of enrolment.

Higher education courses

**Paying back your course fees starts at less than £1 a day**

Don't be alarmed by what you've heard about tuition fees for higher education courses. The new national arrangements for loans, grants and loan repayments mean you really can afford to study for a higher level qualification. For the first time, tuition fee loans are available for part-time courses, as well as full-time courses. You don't start to pay off your loan until you're earning £21,000 and, for example, if you're earning £25,000, you only pay back £30 per month, which works out at less than £1 per day. Read more about repayments at the Student Loans Company website.

Our fees are as follows:
