How to Pay

For the latest prices, please use our course search to find full information about the course. This will also include details of any additional costs, such as materials, exam fees or uniforms.

All fees must be paid at enrolment before the course start date. Unfortunately we cannot accept enrolments or payments at any of our community venues.

  • What payment types do you accept?

    We accept payment by credit/debit card, cash or cheque.

    Paying by post: Please do not send cash in the post, we can only accept cash at our receptions. If you wish to pay by card please complete the payment form and we will contact you for payment. Your card details will be destroyed once payment has been taken. You may also send us a cheque in the post, payable to "Exeter College".

    Payment in person: You can pay by card, cash or cheque at our receptions and do not need to complete a payment form.

  • Is it possible to pay in instalments?

    For courses costing over £150, you may pay in instalments of 50% at enrolment, followed by 2 monthly direct debit payments. This can be arranged by visiting one of our receptions to enrol.

    For courses costing over £500, you may pay a £150 deposit prior to enrolment on the course to secure your place. If you have an interview and are successful, you will be invoiced for the balance in September, or you can arrange an instalment plan as detailed above.

    Unfortunately we cannot offer instalment plans for companies, overseas learners or courses costing under £150. Click here to read our full instalment policy.

  • My employer is paying for my course - how do I arrange this?

    Please complete the Employer Payment form and include this with your enrolment form.

  • How do I know if I am eligible for the reduced fee?

    Some of our courses have a 'reduced fee'. You are entitled to the reduced fee if you are in receipt of:

    • Job Seeker’s Allowance
    • Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) in the work related activity group

    You will need to bring evidence of your benefit to one of our receptions when you come to enrol. This can be an official letter (less than one month old) showing that you are in receipt of the benefit.

    You may also get part of your course fees reduced if you want to study for and haven’t already got a qualification similar to NVQ2 or NVQ3. Please contact us for further information.

  • I have not lived in the EU/EAA for 3 years – can I study a course?

    If you have not lived in the EU/EAA for 3 years or need a visa to study in the country, your fees will be higher (depending on immigration status). For adult part-time courses, this will be double the advertised fee. For any part time course which is free non EU, non-home students are to pay the standard PCDL fee for that time band.  Please contact us for further details.

  • Can I get a refund?

    You will get a refund if we have to cancel a course that you have already paid for, or if after your interview or assessment we agree with you that the course is not suitable and cannot offer an alternative. You may be entitled to a pro-rata refund should you need to withdraw from the course due to a serious illness. Please see our full refund policy here.

  • What happens if my course is cancelled?

    Our prospectus is correct at the time of print and we will update any details on our website as quickly as possible. If we have to cancel your course, we will contact you and, where possible, offer an alternative. If you have already paid for the course, you will receive a refund. Please see our full refund policy here.

  • Is there any financial support available to help me to pay for my course?

    You may be entitled to additional support depending on your circumstances. For information on funding support available, visit our Funding Support page.
