Are you aged 19+?
There are fees attached to all courses but the good news is you may be entitled to financial help from college towards payment of fees, travel costs, childcare, residential fees or equipment required for your course (conditions apply).
You may not have to pay course fees if you are claiming certain benefits or you are studying your first full level 2 course, or if you are aged 19-23, your first full level 3 course (conditions apply).
From August 2016, Advanced Learner Loans will give students aged 19+ in further education, studying eligible level 3-6 courses, access to financial support for tuition costs from the Student Loans Company.
Currently, if you take out an Advanced Learner Loan for an Access to Higher Education course and you subsequently progress on to complete a higher education course eg HNC/D, Foundation Degree or Degree, you won't have to pay back your Advanced Learner Loan.
It is easy to apply, your household income isn't taken into account and there are no credit checks. For more information, please visit www.gov.uk/advanced-learning-loans for details, or call us on 0151 551 7777 and we would be happy to help you.

Our course fees at Wirral Met College include tuition and examination fees, unless otherwise stated.
You can pay for your fees by credit or debit card, cheque or cash. All students paying their own fees will be expected to make a contribution to the enrolment fee at the time they enrol (enrolments at main site only). This will be £80 or the full balance, if this is less than £80. Please note that if no fees are payable on your course, you will not be expected to make a payment at enrolment.
Fee Payment Options
- Pay total fee at enrolment
- Make initial payment at enrolment, and then pay the balance within two weeks
- Make initial payment at enrolment, then pay remaining balance by direct debit instalments. (Failure to meet a direct debit instalment will result in the full balance of fees becoming due immediately)
- Students whose fees are sponsored by employers, agents, local authorities or other organisations must provide written evidence of this at enrolment. A letter must contain contact details of who will pay the fees, and the address to which the invoice should be sent. In the absence of this evidence, the enrolling student will be liable for fees. When an employer or other agency agrees to pay these fees, they become liable for them in full.
