Fees and Funding
Higher National Certificate & Higher National Diploma
To secure your place you must accept our offer and pay a non-refundable deposit of £500. This deposit can be paid by card online, by cheque, by direct transfer (please ask for bank details) or in cash at the school. This deposit is part of the total fees payable.
Paying the balance of the fees
Paying by cheque, via card online, direct transfer or cash
The balance of the fees can be paid via a government higher education student loan or paid by card online, by cheque, by direct transfer to our bank account or by cash.
In exceptional circumstances we can offer an installment plan over three installments to pay the fees, this will include an additional admin charge of £25.00.
Paying by student loans
You must start your student loan application as soon as possible. We can offer you help and support to do this via Chichester College or at the film school.
To secure your place on the course you must have an approval letter from the Student Loans Company one week before the start of term. Please keep us up to date on the status of your application.
The Student Loans Company only release your fees to the film school after you have attended for each term. The student loan covers all your tuition fees so once you have attended for one term your deposit will be returned to you.
The Student Loans Company pay for each term of attendance so if you decide to leave during the academic year we have to inform the student loans company. The balance of the fees then become payable by you (not the student loans company).
We only offer refunds if we cancel the course or in exceptional circumstances.
