For 2022-23, the tuition fee for SCITTELS PGCE and Colegrave School Direct PGCE programmes is £9,250. Most trainees are entitled to a loan for the tuition fee via the Student Loan Company.
Trainees do not need a confirmed place on a teacher training programme in order to apply for a Student Loan. You can apply with your preferred choice and you can change details later if required which will ensure that your student finance is ready for the start of your course.
Those paying privately will need to pay in full by December. SCITTELS retains a quarter of the fee if trainees leave before December.
Additional Maintenance Loans
Maintenance Loans are available to help with your living costs while you are on the programme and the amount of Maintenance Loan you can get depends on where you live and study. The Maintenance Loan will be partly based on an assessment of household income (i.e. your own income and that of anyone you live with e.g. your partner or parents). You’ll only repay your student loan when your income is over the threshold amount.
There is some additional help that you may be able to get, such as Universal Credit, Disabled Students’ Allowances and Adult Dependants’ Grant. Please refer to www.gov.uk/student-finance/extra-help for more information.
You can use the student finance calculator on https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator to estimate the amount of student loan and other funding available to you.
