Course Fees


Course Fees include the Summer School, Lab Day and costs relating to exams.  Students are responsible for all re-sit examination fees.  We charge a small fee of £50.00 should a student decide to spread the course over two years.  We only operate a £ sterling bank account and your bank would have to make any necessary currency conversions.  

We can accept credit card payments, however, we do not accept Diners or American Express credit cards.  

We can offer a termly instalment payment plan but this is not available for every applicant.

We do not offer any refunds.  The course is non-transferrable.

Students who wish to defer their studies and complete the Diploma course over a two year period will be subject to a deferral fee of £50.

Students who wish to 'opt out' to the third and final year, will be subject to an additional fee of 10% of their overall course fee.  This will be dependent on their location fees and payment type.

VAT will be added to any additional fees where applicable.

Diplomas are awarded in March at the Diploma Ceremony and posted to those who cannot attend.  Please look after your Diploma certificate.  The Diploma is not stored electronically and therefore replacement certificates have to be re-produced and will cost £50 (including standard postage).  A replacement certificate is an exact duplicate of your original certificate with 'Replacement Certificate' reflected on it.
