Fees vary according to each course. Please see details on each course page. Our fees vary for a number of reasons primarily around class size and language level.
A 10 week term covers 30 hours of learning time – this comprises of 20 hours of guided learning and 10 hours in individual additional study. A full course (2 terms) comprises of 40 hours of guided learning and 20 hours in individual additional study.
Fast Track courses cover twice the amount of hours in one term making a total of 60 learning hours over 10 weeks - 40 hours of guided learning and 20 hours in individual additional study.
Fees cover all tuition, access to a VLE, marking, tests* and handouts, but not the textbook.
*With the exception of the iBSL exams – see below for costs:
- Level 1 Award: British Sign Language Studies - iBSL - Part 1 (iBSL1A2): £33
- Level 1 Award: British Sign Language Studies - iBSL - Part 2 (iBSL1A3): £33

Our courses are the same for everyone - staff, students, members of the public - please note that we do not offer any discounts or concessionary rates except for the following:
PhD students at the School of Arts
PhD students from School of Arts (SoA) enrolling for a complete course (60 learning hours) can benefit from 50% off the full price**. PhD students from the School of Arts (SoA) who have received approval from their supervisor and are within 5 years of completing their doctoral degree, can benefit from this funding.
Students on the AHRC Midlands 4 Cities DTP can also apply for the Student Development Fund. For further information please contact Louise Taylor
PhD students from SoA who enrol for a course but fail to complete the course (attending at least 60% of all lessons and sitting all exams) will be invoiced for the outstanding balance.
While PGRs in the School of Arts are entitled to a discounted rate on languages as part of their School training support, other College PGRs should enquire about funding possibilities for languages from their own departmental support funds or from relevant College PGR Funds.
**British Sign Language courses, which are 10 weeks long (1 term, 30 learning hours) can also be funded for PhD students from SoA (funding doesn't include the exam fee).
