Tuition fees and loans

Leeds Trinity postgraduate PGCE tuition fees for UK Home students are £9,250 in 2021–22 and 2022-23.

You will not have to pay these fees upfront.

Eligible UK students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees from the government, which you repay gradually through monthly repayments.

As a full-time student, you will not start repaying your loan until the April after you leave university, and once you're earning over a set threshold. The threshold depends on which funding body your student finance is from (e.g. Student Finance England / Student Finance Northern Ireland etc.) and which year you started Higher Education. For more information visit Repaying your student loan - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) 

International and EU students can now apply for a PGCE at Leeds Trinity from 2021-22. The fees for international and EU applicants is £12,500. Get more information on international fees and finance.

Financial support for EU students

EU Nationals who have settled status or pre-settled status under the EUSS scheme, usually qualify for Home Fees and can usually apply for student finance, providing they meet the residency eligibility criteria (where you have been ordinarily resident prior to the start of the course).

What funding you will be eligible for will depend on your status and residency history. Visit Student finance: Eligibility - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) for more information.

EU Nationals who do not have a status through the EUSS scheme will normally be classed as International Students.
