The North West SCITT Programme costs £9,250 for the academic year 2020-21.

In addition, all trainees are expected to pay their own travel costs to school and centre-based training. We will make every effort to keep these costs as low as possible by aiming to place you in an appropriate school near to your home. Financial Support typically comes from the following sources:

You can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan if your course starts on or after 1 August 2017.

Tuition Fee Loan: The Tuition Fee Loan is £9,250 and will be paid directly to us. You must pay it back.

Maintenance Loan for living costs: You may have to give details of your household income. The loan is paid directly into your bank account at the start of term. You have to pay the loan back.

For the 2019 to 2020 academic year, full-time students can receive a loan up to £7,529 if living at home, or £8,944 if living away from home.

Use the student finance calculator to estimate your Maintenance Loan.
