FAQs

How much will a course cost?

Visit our page on fees and funding for the most up-to-date information.

Thanks to a range of loans and bursaries, university level courses are available to people of all backgrounds.

Typically, students take out a tuition fee loan to cover their course fees. This covers the full cost of tuition, meaning there is no upfront fee to pay and your repayments will be based on your income after you finish your course, not what you borrowed. Plus, there is no age limit for tuition fee loans.

Does it matter if I’ve been out of education for a while?

Your experience outside of the classroom may be as valuable as those in it, due to the fact many of our degrees are focused around a particular career. Our Access to Higher Education Diploma is also available to students who would benefit from honing their study skills or gaining enough experience to apply for a university level course. You should not assume that university-level courses are not for you. Get in touch with us to explore your options!

Aren’t Universities big and overwhelming?

As a student at Farnborough you will be studying on a quiet campus with small class sizes; and if you studied at college here you will already know several of the teachers and classrooms too.

How will I find the time to study?

Some of our degrees are taught with part-time attendance, while our professional courses are taught in the evenings. Some of our courses are also tailored to fit around your work commitments too, be sure to ask us about how your work, family and study commitments can be balanced.

How will I look after my young children while studying?

Thanks to our onsite nursery, Bookworms, you can have your children cared for close by while you study. Ofsted confirmed the Good standard of the nursery in 2015, which has a baby unit, toddler room, preschool room and outdoor play area.
