Student Finance

If you decide to/ have already accepted your offer from us, we highly recommend that you apply for your Student Finance as soon as possible to ensure everything is in place for the beginning of the course. You can apply for a:

  • tuition fee loan of up to £9,250 to cover your teacher training, so you do not need to pay course fees upfront
  • maintenance loan of up to £12,382 to help with living costs

Student Finance Calculator

Once you have applied through Student Finance, we will then need to confirm your registration on the course. This is done by you signing the unconditional offer letter, issued once you have met any conditions. We will also then need to confirm your attendance on the course, this is done at the end of your first week on placement.

We understand that student finance then takes around 3 to 5 days to process the payments.

Please see below the information that you will need to ensure you are applying for the correct course:

Student Loan Reimbursement Scheme (Secondary)

To encourage and reward Languages, Science and Computing teachers to teach in specific areas of England, which includes Bradford, the Teachers' Student Loan Reimbursement scheme will pay back the student loan repayments you've made in the previous year. To be eligible for reimbursement you must be employed in a secondary or special school in Bradford.

If you start teacher training or are in years 1 to 5 of your career from September 2019 or September 2020, the Teachers' Student Loan Reimbursement scheme will pay back the student loan repayments via PAYE to the Student Loans Company and teach Languages or Science in a state-funded school in a designated local authority (Bradford is included).

You claim your reimbursement in arrears at the beginning of the academic year.
