Full-time Students

Harrogate College fees for full-time Higher Education students depend on the programme of study.  We will be charging full time tuition fees of £7,950 per academic year unless otherwise stated, for ‘home’ students starting full-time HE programmes in 2021/22.

For those who have the potential to benefit from studying with us at the University Centre, there should be no financial barriers.

Part-time Students

Tuition fee loan from Student Finance England

Tuition fee loans will be available to cover the full cost of tuition, regardless of household income, and this will be paid directly to the College by the Student Loans Company. As a part-time student you are also eligible for a tuition fee loan.

As a full time student, you’ll be due to start repaying your loan in the April after you finish or leave your course, but only if you’re earning over the repayment threshold.

If you’re a part-time student, you’ll be due to start repaying your loan in the April after you finish or leave your course, or the April four years after the first day of your course (even if you’re still studying), whichever comes first, but only if you’re earning over the repayment threshold.

You’ll only start making repayments when your income is over the UK repayment threshold, which is currently £26,575 a year, £2,214 a month or £511 a week (before tax and other deductions). If your income falls below the repayment threshold, repayments will stop and only re-start when your income is over the threshold.

You’ll repay 9% of your income over £511 a week, £2,214 a month or £26,575 a year. If your income changes, either rising or falling, your repayment amounts will automatically change to reflect this.

Yearly income before tax Monthly income before tax Monthly repayment
Up to £26,575 £2,214 £0
£27,000 £2,250 £3
£29,500 £2,458 £21
£31,000 £2,583 £39
£33,000 £2,750 £54
