Would you like to spread the cost of your course fees?

Any student wishing to pay monthly is required to pay a deposit upon enrolment with the balance spread over a maximum of six months.

See example below:

  • Course fees:  £349.00
    Charges:  £40.00 (This varies on each course)

  • Total:  £389.00

  • Deposit up front: £189.00

  • 4 monthly payments of £50.00  

We do not offer discounts on fees. Every student pays the same unless enrolling onto two or more courses at the same time and paying in full.

Please have a debit or credit card available when you call.

Unfortunately we cannot offer a payment plan unless you have a bank account. If you wish to set up a payment plan using another persons account we need permission of the account holder.

Please read terms below before applying:

Please be aware that all students who want to arrange a payment plan will be required to sign a finance agreement before course materials are released. Any late payments will incur charges. It is also the student’s responsibility to complete the course. We can not be held responsible for any changes in personal circumstances once you enrol. Please note your expiry date. Extensions can normally be granted where more time is required. It is also the student’s responsibility to maintain the payments as arranged. All payments must be made on the due date as agreed. We maintain the right to pass on details of any student who does not keep up payments as agreed to a collection agency if we feel necessary.

All students have a 14 day (10 working days) cancellation period upon receipt if the course is not suitable in any way. (This excludes our short CPD and CIW Certified courses). These are non returnable once you have logged on and accessed the course. If software is provided with your course it is important that you do not use them within the cancellation period unless you are completely happy with your purchase. Courses that come with software cannot be returned once the software has been opened. No refunds or cancellation rights will be given on courses that contain software that has been installed unless proven to be faulty, where an identical replacement will be issued. Any faults must be reported within 14 days of receipt. After this period, if you require a replacement you will incur additional charges.
