One of the biggest concerns for any potential student is the financial commitment involved. UK Open College recognise this and have implemented a pay as you study plan to assist students in spreading any fees involved with their course over a manageable period of time. Students are able to pay a deposit upon enrolment followed by a monthly repayment over a set period of time.

We would encourage students to view any related fees as an investment in their future. The majority of investments will provide a rewarding return over a set period of time. Once qualified and in employment students can expect a fantastic return on their investment year after year.

We offer all UK Based students guaranteed acceptance onto this scheme* upon completion of a signed student agreement. Shortly after paying your deposit our accounts department will contact you direct via telephone to gather the required information to complete the agreement. Once received we will forward a digital document via email for your signature. 

*Contact details, employment details and valid UK bank details with the ability to set up direct debit are required for all students applying for our pay as you study plan. If students are unable to provide this information any application may be declined.
