Fees & Financial Support

At Buxton & Leek College, we are committed to ensuring education is accessible and affordable for all students.

Will I have to pay for my course?

If you are aged 18 or under on 31st August before you start your course, you do not have to pay tuition fees. There may however be some associated costs with your course. There are various schemes available to help support students with the financial costs of study if required. We are here to support you to access these schemes and make sure you get the funding you are entitled to.

Whether you have to pay or not depends on criteria such as age, eligibility for discounts and whether you live in the UK, European Union (EU) or overseas. Click here to find out if fees apply to you.
