Getting back into education shouldn’t depend on your financial situation. Money worries shouldn’t get in the way of achieving your goals and ambitions. So if you are concerned about the cost of studying, we want to tell you that there is plenty of support available to make sure you can study worry-free.

Starting this academic year (2018/2019), if you are aged 19 years and over and earn up to £15,736 each year, you will be able to benefit from free adult courses. It’s up to you whether you’ll study a full-time course or a part-time course, the good news is that you will do it without having to pay any tuition fees.

Previous qualifications won’t be considered as eligibility criteria, however, to be eligible for free adult courses you must:
