Tuition fees and exam fees for 16-18 students 

If you are aged 16, 17 or 18 and studying on a full-time or part-time Further Education course, you will not pay tuition or examination fees.

This covers all FE courses, functional skills for English and Maths courses, and GCSE English/Maths (for those aged 19+  who have not achieved GCSE passes).

You will be responsible for costs incurred whilst studying, including books, stationery, special equipment, examinations, a registration fee, travel, meals and any other course-related activities. Help towards these costs is available for many students.
