Fees, funding and enrolment

Please click on the link below for information on our fees.

Enrolment is first-come, first-served. If the course on which you would like to enrol is fully booked, we operate a first-come, first-served waiting list system. Simply click on the Join the Waiting List button alongside the course of your choice and we will email you if a space becomes available. 


If you need to learn a language to support your studies, you can ask your college, department or faculty to sponsor you via our Priority Funding scheme. You'll need to seek permission from your tutor/supervisor, obtain the email address of the financial signatory in your college/department/faculty, and click on the link to the Priority Funding Application Form below. Priority Funding is not available for Fast Track courses. See our course handbook for more information. Priority funding for Hilary term is now closed. 

Colleges will consider refunding students up to half the Fast Track course fees on completion of the course at the end of Trinity term. Please contact your college to find out more about their arrangements before you start your course. A form to record the agreement between a student and their college of their eligibility for the reimbursement scheme is available for students to download below: it should not be returned to the Language Centre.
