Funding and Tuition Fees

For the training year 2019/20:

  • For the academic year 2019/20 we will be charging a tuition fee of £9250.00, for the QTS and PGCE at the University of East London. You may be eligible for a maintenance grant or special support but this will be determined by the Student Loan Company when you make application for your tuition fee loan. More information on the Student Loan for Maintenance can be found at For a range of helpful tools and guidance, you can visit
  • Salaried trainees applying for the QTS will be employed and paid for by their sponsor school. As such it is expected that you will stay with the school through your NQT year as well. You will be asked to provide your evidence of qualifications and DBS to gain employment and sign a contract that states that you are expected to stay with the school for at least two years.
