UK resident students applying for this course could be eligible for a Professional and Career Development Loan to help towards tuition fees and course costs. This is a government-backed scheme where no interest is paid on the loan during the period you study.

To find out whether you are eligible and whether this is the right type of finance for you or to apply visit the direct.gov website or call the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900. This is a bank loan, so you will have to pay it back once you have finished your course.
