There are three payment options:
1. Pay in full upon enrolment
You can pay your course fee in full upon enrolment. Upon enrolment, you receive access to the online Study Guide and Introductory Materials for the first 14 days. After 14 days, you will then have access to all of the learning materials* required for your course.
*The learning materials for some courses are released in stages regardless of the payment method, e.g. the Level 6 Diploma in Equine Physiotherapy.
2. Pay as You Learn
With the Pay as You Learn option, you pay an initial fee which covers the first module of your course including the marking of your first work assignment. Upon enrolment, you receive access to the online Study Guide and Introductory Materials for the first 14 days. After 14 days, you will receive access to Module 1.
Simply click on the “Pay as You Learn Initial Fee” button. This payment will be made securely via PayPal.
Upon receipt of your first assignment you will be sent a PayPal link to make your second payment. As soon as you have clicked this link and made the payment you will be able to access Module 2. Marking of your second assignment is included within the second payment.
This process continues throughout the course. *You may work through the course at your own pace. If you reach the maximum course completion date you may apply for an extension but please note fees may have increased during this time; if you exceed your course completion date, you may need to pay additional fees.
*Some courses require you to complete work in line with a predetermined study planner, e.g. City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing, TOCES Level 6 Diploma in Equine Physiotherapy.
3. Payment via OMNI Finance
Some courses have the option of paying via finance.
If you are paying for your course privately and wish to spread the cost of your course fees you may apply for our 0% or 9.9% interest finance options offered by our finance partners, Omni Capital*. Please note this option is unavailable if paying course fees through a business.
