3. Instalment options
Some distance learning course fees can be paid by instalments.
When you pay by instalments, you are committing to your whole course and to paying the entire course fees. You will make your first payment on enrolment. You will then make your remaining payments on a monthly basis. The number of instalments will vary depending on the course; this is identified on course information at the time of enrolment.
Course fees are payable irrespective of your progress on your course. If you decide to leave your course before completing (or are removed for breaching academic terms and conditions) you will still be expected to pay your course fees in full.
Because we are not in the business of offering a “traditional bank loan type facility”, nor do we use third party credit organisations, we only offer this service to individuals who are paying their own tuition fees and who are able to pay their instalments by credit or debit card or through an automated subscription service such as PayPal or Money Bookers.
You should make sure that you act responsibly, and review your financial circumstances and satisfy yourself that you can afford to commit to paying your selected courses fees without causing a financial burden to yourself or your dependants.
It is important to note that where it has been agreed to accept payment by instalments, the price remains due and payable at dispatch, and any failure to make any instalment payment within three days of its due date will entitle us to take the following action:
- Suspend the provision of any support including but not limited to any marking or assessment of your work
- Add additional conditions before removing or lifting such suspension including (by way of example only), the payment in full of any outstanding balance
- Cancel your course
- We always take enforcement action to recover unpaid tuition fees. The cost of which will be recoverable from you
- We do not issue your qualification certificate until your course fees are paid in full.
- We may also lodge the failure to pay with the main Credit Reference Agencies which may affect your ability to obtain credit in the future.
You are undertaking an academic course of study leading to a qualification. As such you are required to meet certain minimum standards and obligations.
Failing to meet those standards and obligations can result in your removal from the programme. Refunds of course fees are not made in these circumstances and you will still be liable for outstanding fees. Please see our general terms and conditions for information about our refunds policy.
You are required to comply with your obligations under these conditions and to:-
- Participate in agreed telephone tutorials arranged by your tutor
- Submit course work and assignments within the deadlines agreed between you and your tutor
- Submit course work and assignments in the manner requested by your tutor or as determined in relevant course material such as the Learner Handbook or Assignment Instructions

- Not commit acts of plagiarism and to reference your work using appropriate citations. If you are found to have committed plagiarism this is regarded as a material breach of these terms and conditions and your course will be terminated.
- Submit course work and assignments that are your own work and does not include in part or whole work completed by any other person. Only authentic work can be marked.
- Respond to requests for information from your tutor in a prompt manner
