City of Westminster College


Our fee charges are based on whether you are considered to be a Home or International student. The guidance below is for students assessed as ‘Home’ students. Generally , a Home student is a national of a country inside the United Kingdom (UK)/European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) or has ‘settled’ status and has resided in the UK for the last 3 years prior to the start date of the course. Some exceptions apply and we will ask you to provide evidence of your nationality and residency status prior to your enrolment.

If the above does not apply to you, please speak to our Information and Advice Team on 020 7258 2721, who will provide information about the courses available and fees.

Note: The category that you fall into, and therefore the financial support that is available to you, is dependent on a number of factors, including:

a) your age and employment/benefit status

b) the course you are studying

c) your nationality/immigration status.

All further education courses from Entry Level to Level 3 are free to EU residents who are under 19 years old on the 31st August 2013. If you are aged 19 or over on the 31st August you will normally be required to pay a course fee unless you are eligible for a fee remission.

The cost of your course includes tuition fees and examination/registration fee. Some courses are cheaper than others because they are part funded, and some learners may be eligible for this concession.

Individuals assessed by the College to be eligible for fee remission at enrolment, i.e. fully- funded students, will be funded by the government for the entirety of their qualification. A learner’s eligibility is assessed at the start of their studies and this assessment will stand for the duration of the course (qualification aim).Where the course of study extends over two years i.e. into the next Academic Year, your fee assessment status will remain the same.

An ¹Academic Year is defined as running from August 1st to July 31st of the subsequent year e.g. 2013/14 Academic Year is August 1st 2013 – July 31st 2014 (inclusive). Please read below for information on whether you need to pay fees and/or if you are eligible for fee remission.
