To secure your place on all courses a non-refundable deposit of £500 is required.
Brighton Journalist Works offers a number of ways to support students with their fees:
Early Payment Discount
The early payment discount is applicable if the full course balance is paid within a month of the place being offered.
Otherwise the course fee reverts to the full amount given above.
Please note that the early payment discount is not valid if your application is less than four weeks before the intended start date of your course.
Professional Career Development Loans
Both our fast-track and part-time courses are registered with the Skills Funding Agency, so you can apply for PCDL, a government-sponsored loan, to pay for 80 per cent of your course plus living expenses.
We offer a range of instalment plans that allow students to pay their fees spread over the duration of the course.
These are available for both Fast Track and part-time courses.
As an example for the Fast Track course in March 2018 you would pay a deposit of £800 to secure your place on the course then spread the balance over four months at £912.50 a month, starting on first day of the course.
For a full range of staged payment options contact us for more details.
