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.

For further guidance on course costs or to enquire about eligibility for help with tuition and examination fees, contact the FE Registry Helpline on 01274 433088.
