Part-time course fees

How do I find out what the fee for my course is?
The fee for your chosen course is listed on the individual course pages that you can access via the course search. It includes the cost of tuition plus the cost of any exam and registration fee charged by the exam board (if applicable).

Are there any other costs I may have to pay?
Some courses may require you to pay extra costs for things such as course books, trips, and specialist equipment or clothing. If your course has any additional costs, these will also be listed on the individual course pages accessed via the course search, or you can call 01234 291000.

I’m an international student – are my course fees different?
If you have not been resident in the UK, EU or EEA for more than three years before the start of your course (excluding any time spent in full-time education), different course fees may apply to you – please call +44 (0)1234 291000 to find out more.

My employer is funding my course – what do I need to do?
You’ll need to provide a signed letter or purchase order from your employer and we will invoice them accordingly. Call our Employer Training Services team on 01234 291747 to find out more.

Pay by instalments
Taking out a loan isn’t the only way to pay for your course – for courses over £100 Bedford College also offers an affordable Direct Debit instalments option to help make part-time study more affordable and spread the cost of tuition fees. Please note: an additional £20 charge applies if you choose to pay by instalments.
