Fees for European Union students

If you are eligible for EU fees under current funding rules, some programmes are offered at a subsidised rate. This is just one of the benefits of studying at a UK state college.

To find out more about the funding rules for course fees please refer to the UKCISA website.

Please note that although the UK is leaving the European Union on 31 December 2020, the fees set out in our EU Fee Sheet 2020-21 attached will continue to be valid until end of August 2021.

International Fees

For students who do not qualify for EU fees, we offer very reasonably-priced courses.

If you are not an EU national and think you should receive EU fees please contact us at: international@escg.ac.uk .You will be asked to complete a Fee Assessment Form and to provide various documents to support your application.

How to Pay

You can pay your deposit, tuition fees and accommodation by one of the following methods:

Free online overseas bank transfers

East Sussex College has arranged an effective method of international payment through the Pay to Study (PTS) Service. The PTS System is a free service – no bank charges will be added to your transfers – offering significantly beneficial exchange rates. By using this system you are able to pay in your home currency at your local bank, so there is no need to buy Sterling from your bank prior to transferring. This option is only available if you have already received an invoice from East Sussex College.

All payments can be tracked by you, the student, 24 hours a day online. Therefore you will not need to contact the College to confirm whether or not we have received payment.
