Fees and Funding


Tuition fees are listed on each individual course page and are reviewed on an annual basis. Unusually, for UK Higher Education institutions, KLC charges the same course fees for UK and International Students.

Instalment Plans

KLC offers instalment schemes for the payment of tuition fees for some courses to allow students to spread the cost of a course over a certain period of time. The payment plan is open to all applicants, except for students on courses for which fees are payable via monthly direct debit where a UK bank account is required

Please refer to specific course information pages for details of instalment payment plans available. If you are unsure whether the instalment scheme is applicable to your chosen course, please contact our Registrars on 020 7376 3377 or at registrar@klc.co.uk
