Tuition fees and financial support

Financial information for the journey ahead

If you’re studying on a full-time course you may be eligible for means-tested financial support to help towards the cost of being a student.

You can apply for financial support to assist with accommodation costs, travel expenses or even for essential clothing and equipment.

It’s important to apply for financial support as soon as possible to ensure you receive the outcome of your application before you enrol at Reaseheath.

We aim to process all applications within 2 weeks and a letter detailing the outcome will be emailed to you. Click here for more information about fees and funding.

Our Student Finance Team are also on-hand to answer any questions on 01270 613205 or by email If you don’t have access to the web then you can request a paper application

Student ID cards

Your Student Identity Card will give you access to buildings, the Learning Resource Centre and it’s the easiest  way to pay for all the catering and food facilities in the college.

Your card is linked to your Reaseheath ‘Ways 2 Pay’ account which provides access to the college cashless catering system. You can manage this online or from special terminals on campus.

Details about how to set up your online account will be emailed to you before the start of term. We use the email address you supply on the registration form enclosed in your welcome pack as your USERNAME for the ‘Ways2Pay’ system and to send you full instructions with your initial password.

Please contact student finance if you need any help with your meal card.

We also offer an easy to use online payment facility which can be accessed 24 hours a day. Fees can be paid in full or by monthly instalments with a credit or debit card. Payments can be made online here.

Don’t forget that additional products and services can be purchased via our online store.

Advanced learner loans

If you are aged aged 24 and over at the start of your course, or 19 and over if you have previously achieved a level 3 qualification the Advanced Learner Loans could help you study on a course or support you in a change of career.

Financial support

If you are under 19-years old on 31st August 2019 the tuition fees and exam costs are free for our courses. Students aged 19 years or over will be charged tuition fees as detailed here. If you must pay a fee, financial support may be available.

Depending on your choice of course you may also be required to pay costs associated with study tours or additional qualifications. These costs are not included in your tuition fees.

Tuition fees are due in full at the start of term in September. We do provide an option to set up an instalment plan online or with the Student Finance Team.

After each half term, students with outstanding tuition fees or those who have failed to set up an instalment plan will be excluded from classes. Payments which continue to be outstanding will result in the student being excluded.

* Please note that fees are subject to change as the information is taken from external sources which may be updated throughout the year.
