Course Fees

Our ESOL courses are free to asylum seekers. For other learners, there is a contribution fee to be paid at the start of the course. This is the only charge and includes the cost of all teaching, exams and a crèche space (where available).

Our main courses run for 32 weeks over the academic year (September to June) and the fee is just £150 (or £75 if you get Universal Credit or other income-related benefits). Classes run for 4 hours per week, or 2 hours per week with creche. Regular attendance is very important as places are limited, and demand is high.

Apply for a place

We recruit for our ESOL courses between June and September. Places do sometimes become available at other times, particularly for our short courses.
