Tuition fees

As an approved provider of Higher Education, financial support is available for all Futureworks degree and diploma courses and as part of your application to study at Futureworks, you’ll need to think about how you’ll be funding your course. Depending on your circumstances, there’s a range of financial help and support available.

Funding for degree courses

Degree courses are eligible for funding via a loan from the Student Loans Company (SLC), and students can apply for a loan for each year of study. As a private institution, Futureworks students are able to borrow a maximum of £6,165 per year towards their tuition fees.

Tuition fees for Futureworks degree programmes are £6,765 per year, which means that if you’re using a student loan from the government to fund your course you will need to pay an additional £600 yourself, for each year of study. This can be paid upfront at the start of the first semester, or you can setup a monthly direct debit at no additional charge and spread the cost over the academic year.

Our Admissions Team is here to help, and they can guide you through the process. If you have any questions about funding your degree programme, or about tuition fee loans and/or direct debits, please call us on 0161 214 4602.

Funding for diploma courses

Funding a diploma or foundation course at Futureworks is different from funding for degree courses, and students are required to find their own funding – for this reason we offer a number of payment plans via Direct Debit.

You might choose to pay for your fees in full at the beginning of the course, or perhaps make yearly payments. You may wish to make manageable monthly instalments, or even a combination of the above. Alternatively, you might want to consider a Professional and Career Development Loan.

We are a Professional and Career Development Loans registered Learning Provider, registration number 20147. A Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial bank loan that you can use to help pay for work-related learning. For further information on financial assistance to support your learning, please visit the GOV.UK website or contact the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900.

We recognise that funding your course can be a complex matter, and we would recommend that you discuss your finance options with a member of our Admissions Team on 0161 214 4602 to discuss the options available to you. Alternatively you can email them here:
