Costs and Funding

What is the cost of completing a SCITT course?
As you will be gaining a post-graduate qualification (Qualified Teacher Status, Post Graduate Certificate in Education, etc.), the courses do have tuition fees.
  • The course fees for UK students in 2024/25 are £9,250.
  • The tuition fees for UK/EU students are typically £9,250.
Is there any funding available?
As you will be registered as a full-time student throughout your training, you will have access to a student loan.
Depending on your chosen route, subject and qualifications, you may also be eligible for a bursary or grant to support you throughout your training.
Current bursaries announced by the Department for Education are only for secondary subjects:
  • Art and design | £10,000
  • Biology | £25,000

The latest updates on bursaries can be found on the Department for Education’s Get Into Teaching website You do not need to apply for a bursary. If you are eligible, you will automatically receive it. 
Will I be paid a salary during my SCITT year?
As a trainee teacher is a full-time student, you will not receive a salary during your SCITT year programme.
We encourage you to check the Department for Education’s Get Into Teaching website to learn more about the different bursaries and funding options that might be available to you.
After you have completed the ITT course and gained Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), you will be guaranteed a minimum starting salary of £30,000.
