Quality degrees for affordable fees

Bradford College is committed to delivering quality, affordable degrees. We work hard to cut the cost and not the corners on our undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses. Our tuition fees for the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years are detailed below. The tuition fee rate per year is fixed for the duration of the course providing there is no break in study.

A 25% discount will be available for the Masters in Education to the following:

  • For those in partnership organisations (including college)
  • For those who return to do a masters within 5 years of graduating from an education programme.

You will not be asked to pay these fees up front as you should be eligible for loans to cover the tuition fees and assist with living expenses from Student Finance England. However, please ensure that you have made your application and secured funding for your programme prior to registration. The Student Finance England application system is open for 2019/20 applicants now at https://www.gov.uk/apply-online-for-student-finance


If funding is not secured you will need to arrange alternative payment.

If you are studying on a part-time programme that leads to an HNC, HND, foundation degree or bachelor’s degree, you can apply to Student Finance England for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your programme fee. See www.gov.uk/studentfinance. Some part time courses also attract a maintenance loan, more information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/parttime-students 

All undergraduate part-time courses are currently charged at £875 per 20 credits. Course fees therefore vary between £2,625 (for 60 credit courses) and £3,500 (for 80 credit courses). For progressing students, the fee will remain at £700 per 20 credits (£2,100 for 60 credit course and £2,800 for 80 credit courses). 

Part-time postgraduate courses are charged at £1,920 per 60 credits, but will remain at £1,500 per 60 credits for progressing students and MA Visual Arts. These fees are correct as of September 2019, but are subject to review.
