Fees and Funding

Finance

The PGCE is financed as an undergraduate course with annual fees of £9,000.  However, did you know that financial support for trainee teachers has never been better? You could get £30,000 tax-free while you train, either as a bursary or prestigious scholarship. Your eligibility for financial support, and the amount you can expect to receive, will depend on the subject you choose to teach and your degree classification or highest relevant academic qualification. If your degree isn’t in the subject you wish to teach, or it’s a long time since you used your degree subject, you may be eligible for a funded subject knowledge enhancement course to increase your subject knowledge before starting your training.
