Course fees

All course fees for PGCE and School Direct programmes are charged at £9,250. If you need help covering the tuition fee or require a maintenance loan, please visit for further information.


There are bursaries available for eligible graduates who are starting their training on a postgraduate route into the non-salaried PGCE and School Direct programmes. Please visit the bursaries and scholarships area on the Get Into Teaching website.

You may also qualify for a scholarship depending on your degree subject and qualifications.

Additional programme costs

All trainees will do a mandatory “out of classroom experience” fieldtrip as part of their teacher training programme. The OAKS provides financial support to subsidise the cost of the fieldtrip for trainees. This cost is included within the pre-course fee, which also includes the cost of your Enhanced DBS, Declaration of Health (Fitness to Teach declaration) and your copy of the professional legal responsibilities in the Bristol Guide. Forecast costs are reviewed on an annual basis to ensure they remain representative and published within the pre-course booklet each year. These costs will not exceed £150.

You can find more information about funding and bursaries on the Get into Teaching website.
