Teacher training: UK and EU student finance

Leeds Trinity University > Student finance > Teacher training: UK and EU student finance

​​​​​​​​​​Leeds Trinity University provides teacher training PGCE Provider-led, School Direct and SCITT study routes.​

Tuition fees and loans​

Leeds Trinity postgraduate Initial Teacher Training (ITT) tuition fees are £9,250 in 2019–20. 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 £25,716. This earning threshold may 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. For more details, download our Financial Information leaflet.

English and EU students can apply and find out more information at This website also has a calculator which gives you an estimate of what you will receive.
