Can I get help with the cost?

If you’re in the Royal Navy, our instalment payment plan option makes it easy to get started – we require just a 20% deposit and £20 fee. It may also be possible to save £175 on your course by applying for Standard Learning Credits. Contact your Learning and Development Centre for more information.

We also have a partnership with Greenwich Hospital, which allows Royal Naval officers who want to study an additional £100-£150 towards the cost of GCSE or A-Level study, all of which will help make studying that little bit more affordable.
