Finance fact sheets
Please download our Student Services fact sheets for more information on funding for initial teacher training.
As a student on a teacher training course, you should factor some additional costs into your budget, alongside your tuition fees and living expenses. This includes travel costs to your placement school which will obviously vary according to where you live, where you need to travel to, and your mode of transport.
Some of our courses will also include local visits or field trips which will also incur costs. You should be able to access most of the books you'll need through our libraries, though you may wish to purchase your own copies or more specific titles. The school covers the cost of a DBS check.
