When do I need to pay course fees?

For a majority of Iron Mill College courses, an Enrolment Deposit will need to be paid in order to reserve your place on a course. Subsequent payments will be determined by the finance plan that you choose, with the first instalment typically due just before the commencement of the course.

For Iron Mill courses where an interview is involved as part of the process, you will need to pay an Application Fee of £100 prior to attending your interview. If you are successful at interview, you will then need to pay the Enrolment Deposit to reserve your place on the course. If you are not successful at interview, you will be refunded the Application Fee, minus a £25 admin fee (i.e. you will receive a refund of £75).

Are bespoke payment plans available for course fees?
 

Bespoke payment plans, which can be tailored to meet your specific needs, are available for most Iron Mill courses. For all bespoke payment plans, the plan needs to be agreed with us prior to the start of the course and the course Enrolment Deposit also paid in advance to reserve your place as normal. Subsequent payments can be arranged to a schedule that suits you, but must be paid via standing order and the full course fees paid off by the 1st day of the month during which the course finishes.

Please see individual course pages and their 'Fees' tab for details of whether a bespoke payment plan is available or contact us
