Scholarship, loans, and bursaries
Information available on the getintoteaching website in an easy to access format to guide you through funding for train to teach courses.
Depending on your subject you might be eligible for a teaching bursary or scholarship when training to teach which are tax free and don't need to pay back.
As a parent or carer, there are also possible options for funding and support.
Even if your subject does not qualify you to receive a scholarship or bursary, you can still receive funding to help you train to teach.
A tuition fee loan of up to £9,250 allows you to cover your teacher training, without paying for the course fees upfront! There is also a maintenance loan of up to £13,022 to help with living costs. What is great about these funding options is that even if you have a student loan you can still apply for a tuition fee and a maintenance loan. These do have to be repaid once you are earning.
