To secure your place on the Higher National Diploma and BA (Hons) Top-up courses you must accept our offer and pay a non-refundable deposit of £250. This deposit can be paid by card online, by cheque, by direct transfer (please ask for bank details) or in cash at the school office. This deposit is part of the total fees payable.

If you are planning to pay for the outstanding tuition fee with a student loan, you must start your student loan application as soon as possible. We can offer you help and support to do this via Sussex Coast College Hastings or at the film school.

Full details on student loans are available here.

***Please note we cannot accept Non-EU International students unless you already have a VISA which allows you to be in the country for the duration of the course you would like to study.


If you need financial support for the diploma courses, there are Professional and Career Development Loans that can be used to help pay for work-related learning. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 from participating banks to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work). The Young People’s Learning Agency will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. The loan can be used to pay for course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses.

Full details can be found here.

For the Filmmaking Diploma you must accept our offer and pay a non-refundable deposit of £500.
