Teacher Training

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees for PGCE courses starting from September 2023 are £9,250 pa.

Tuition Fee Loans

Tuition fee loans for Home and pre-2021 entry, settled or pre-settled status EU students are available from Student Finance England so that money for fees does not have to be found up-front.

Apply online at the GOV.UK Student Finance webpage.

Maintenance Loans and Grants

PGCE Home and pre-2022 entry or settled status EU students can also apply for a means-tested Maintenance Loan of up to £9,978 per annum (or £8,400 if living at home with parents), and means-tested help with dependants such as Childcare Grant and Parents’ Learning Allowance as well as Disabled Students’ Allowance and so on from Student Finance England.

Apply online on the GOV.UK Student Finance webpage


Some full-time eligible Home or pre-2021 entry or settled status EU students studying for a PGCE will receive a tax free training bursary through the University. 

If you’re a non-UK citizen you will not usually be eligible for a bursary or scholarship, unless you train to teach languages or physics.

Eligibility for the bursary depends upon the classification and subject of your first degree and what you plan to teach. A table which summarises the standard training bursaries available in 2023/24 can be found at the Get Into Teaching bursaries webpage.

Part-Time PGCE Students

Please note that PGCE students studying on a part-time basis will receive the same financial support as part-time undergraduate students, unless their course lasts for less than a year. See Part-time Student Funding page.

Additional Teacher Training Support

You can get more information on teacher-training support and related issues from the Teaching Information Line on 0800 3892 500, or on the Get Into Teaching website.

Access to Learning Fund

PGCE students may also apply to the University’s Access to Learning Fund for help.
