Tuition fees and loans
Leeds Trinity postgraduate Initial Teacher Training (ITT) tuition fees are £9,250 in 2018–19. Depending on government policy, tuition fees may rise with inflation in future years.
You will not have to pay these fees upfront. Eligible UK and EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through small monthly repayments. Full-time students will not start repaying their loan until the April after you leave university once you're earning over £25,000. This earning threshold will be adjusted annually in line with average earnings by the government.
UK students on non-salaried places studying full-time can apply for a package of maintenance funding from the government to help with general living costs and additional funding if you have children and/or a disability.
English and EU students can apply and find out more information at www.gov.uk/studentfinance
. This website also has a calculator which gives you an estimate of what you will receive.

All students can find information on repaying student loans at www.gov.uk/repaying-your-student-loan.
Students on salaried places or students on non-standard length courses will not be eligible for any Student Finance.
Financial support for EU students in 2018–19
The Government has confirmed that EU students will continue to remain eligible for financial support in academic year 2018 to 2019. EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students. Other non-EU, international students do not have their tuition fees capped in this way.
Bursaries and scholarships 2018-19
Training bursaries and scholarships are available for eligible UK and EU students during PGCE Provider-led, School Direct and SCITT courses that start on or after 1 September 2018. If you're receiving a salary from your school, you are not eligible for a bursary or scholarship as well.

ITT bursaries are provided by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL). Institutions are responsible for making the bursary payments to eligible students. The bursaries are given to UK and EU students only (so you must meet the residency eligibility criteria set for statutory student finance) and depend on which ITT course subject you are studying and the degree you currently hold. To find out what bursaries are available and the eligibility criteria please visit https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-and-salary/overview You do not need to apply for a bursary. Leeds Trinity will advise you of your entitlement in writing during the summer.
