Finance for adult learners aged 19 or over
We understand that there are a number of expenses that you may have that come with taking any College course. With this in mind, the College offers a wide range of help and assistance depending on your personal circumstances as well as advice and guidance on the options available to you (including the 24+ loans, Adult Learning Grant, Learner Support Fund and other funding options). To find out more about student financial support and whether you may qualify or not, you can pick up a leaflet entitled ‘Financial Help Whilst You Study’ from the Learner Consultants at any College Centre. For more information based on your own individual circumstances please call 0870 060 9801 and ask to speak to our Learner Consultants.
Are you age 24 or over and thinking about Further Education?
From the academic year 2013/14, student loans are being introduced by the UK government to support learners aged 24 and over undertaking advanced and higher level courses (like Access to Higher Education or Advanced Apprenticeships). If you are starting a course on or after 1 August 2013 you may qualify for a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan. These loans help you to pay the tuition fees charged by the College.

Help with paying fees: Concessionary Fees
If you enrol onto a course at Westminster Kingsway College, you may be able to pay discounted fees if you are in receipt of a qualifying income based benefit or if you are the unwaged dependant of someone who is in receipt of an income based benefit. Concessionary fees are also available if you are studying for a Skills for Life course (reading, writing, spelling and/or maths) or if you are 60 or over enrolling on a Camden funded community course. Certain conditions will apply and you will be given advice on this when you enrol.
If you are not in receipt if an income based benefit, you may still be eligible to pay discounted fees if you are aged under 26 years old and you have not yet completed a full level three qualification, or higher or equivalent. You will be given advice on this when you enrol.
If you are entitled to a reduced fee because you are in receipt of benefit or meet one of the conditions above then you will need to bring proof of your entitlement when you enrol.
If you do not fall into any of the above categories, you may be asked to pay full course fees.
For Higher Education learners
For more info on finance for adults click here
If you are applying for a Foundation Degree or BA Hons degree at the College, it may be possible to apply for help to pay the tuition fees for these courses. The Access to Learning Fund can provide extra money if you are in financial hardship and need help for your course or to stay in higher education. With some of our Higher Education courses, you may also be able to apply for a Student Loan to help cover the costs of living expenses. For learners with childcare needs, learners living with disabilities and for learners with low incomes, additional financial help is often available. We will be able to help you with information and advice about this when you enrol as we will give you information specific to your circumstances and your choice of course. Please remember that course fees for Higher Education apply for the first year of your course only and any fees for subsequent years of your course will be subject to change.
