Tax Relief


Tax relief can be claimed on tuition fees. Applicants are advised to contact their local tax office in relation to this and to note that the course must be delivered through or in conjunction with an approved institution. For more information: click here

Many universities and institutions offer bursaries so it is useful to keep to regularly check the institutions website for new funding opportunities. When researching finance options have a look in their fees and funding section for up to date information.
