Financial Support

Further information about your fee payment options. 

Fees are payable in full for any college term where you have attended one or more sessions. Course fees at Wirral Met College include tuition and examination fees, unless otherwise stated.

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).

You can pay for your fees by credit or debit card, cheque or cash.

If you are paying your own fees and you are not getting financial assistance such as the Advanced Learner Loan, payment options are as follows:

  • 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);

Instalment payments are as follows:

Course Duration (weeks)Initial paymentNumber of instalments
1-10 Fees Payable in full at enrolment Fees Payable in full at enrolment
11-16 £100 3 instalments
17-23 £100 4 instalments
24 or more £100 6 instalments

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.
