We recommend that you budget in the region of £300 to £600 over the duration of the course to cover these expenses.

If your application is successful, you will be invited to an interview where you will have the opportunity to talk about your work, influences and interests.

Student Protection Plan

Futureworks maintains a Student Protection Plan which has been approved by the Office for Students. The plan sets out the actions Futureworks will take, in co-ordination with its validating partner, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), to ensure that students are protected in the event of a material change to Futureworks’ operations.

A material change may include the decision to close one or more courses, or a decision to cease operations altogether. A material change may, however, be triggered by decisions taken outside of Futureworks control, such as loss of designation/registered status with the Office for Students, or the decision by a validating partner to not renew the delivery one or more courses.

You can download a copy of the plan here.
