The University will be able to provide the resources, staff contact and support you need and deserve. It means that you will benefit from more contact with staff, first-class teaching equipment and an attractive learning environment.
We are very proud of the student experience at Winchester and we aim to make it even better for our students over the next few years.
Please note that as a student progresses onto further years of study (where the course is longer than one year in length), the tuition fees are normally subject to annual inflationary increases.
Foundation degrees are normally taken as part-time study. For new entrants in 2014/15 and 2015/2016, the cost of part-time study will be:
Foundation degree in Childhood Studies 2014/15: £700 per 20 credit module.
Standard foundation degree fee 2014/15: £1,065 per 15 credit module or £1,420 per 20 credit module.
Standard foundation degree fee 2015/16: £1,125 per 15 credit module.
This fee applies to new UK and EU students entering in 2015/16 and will rise annually at the rate permitted by Government regulations. The maximum fee charged in a given year will not exceed the Government permitted rate of £6,750.
Tuition fee support
New part-time UK and EU students who started their course after September 2012 are eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the Government provided they are studying at an intensity of at least 25% of the equivalent full-time course. For more information on Tuition Fee Loans please go to the gov.uk site.
Students taking 120 credits in an academic year will normally be regarded as full-time. In this situation, the annual tuition fee for new entrants in 2014/15 is £8,500 and in 2015/16 will be £9,000. Students studying a full-time foundation degree will be considered for the University's support package.
Tuition fee support
UK and EU full-time students do not have to pay fees upfront before starting their course or whilst they are studying as they are eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan. For more information about Tuition Fee Loans please go to the gov.uk site.
All students should initially apply for the full £8,500 Tuition Fee Loan in 2014/15 and £9,000 in 2015/16 unless they wish to self-fund all or part of the year. Any fee waivers will be applied later in the academic year.
