Course Fees

If you are a home/EU resident you may receive an NCTL training bursary.

The fees for Leeds SCITT PGCE course (with 60 masters credits) for the academic year which ranges between 2017 to 2018 is £9,250.

Available Student Bursaries

The Government provides incentivised monetary awards to encourage high quality candidates into the teaching vocation, these are called bursaries. Unlike student loans, a bursary is organised through your college and does not require you to repay the awarded amount.

If you are currently enrolled on a PGCE course you will not need to fill out an application to apply for a student bursary. The bursary you may be entitled to will depend on the subject you are study- ing and the undergraduate degree you have achieved.

The table below shows the bursaries amounts which are available for 2017 - 2018.
For more information on bursaries for other subjects, please visit the Department for Education website
