Will I have to pay fees?

Learning Programmes at Level 3 and Below

School Leavers under the age of 19 do not have to pay fees on any full time courses, though may have to pay for their second year if turning 19 during their studies.

If you’re aged 19 or over you might qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan. It’s easy to apply for and you won’t have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £27,295. Find more information on Advanced Learner Loans on our website.

If you are studying a part-time course and you receive one of the following benefits, or you depend financially on someone who does, you may be entitled to have your tuition fees waived:

  • Job Seeker's Allowance
  • Income Support

You will, however, have to pay any awarding body/assessment fees (unless you are on a first full level 2 course).

Higher Education Courses at Level 4 and Above

The fee payable for your course is displayed in the table above and can be paid for in a number of ways:

  • HE Loan
  • Instalment Payment Plan
  • Payment in full

* If you are in receipt of Working Tax Credit or receive other allowances, you may be eligible to claim concessionary rates. If you are entitled to a fee concession you will be asked to provide proof of your entitlement.

It is essential that you inform us if your entitlement changes at any time during your course.

For any questions about fees, remissions and entitlements, please contact our helpful Enrolments Team on 01329 815 200.

Course Information

Traineeships are tailor-made study programmes for young people ages 19-24* who are interested in an Apprenticeship or securing work, but require additional support to build their skills and confidence.

At Fareham College, our Traineeship programme runs for 16 weeks and is specifically designed to support you in the development of vital employability skills helping you stand out to employers.

Providing a mixture of in-classroom learning and work experience placement a Traineeship will provide all the support you need to progress onto an Apprenticeship, into employment, or another training course.


Traineeships are a great option if you are looking to advance your education and work experience gaining further qualifications through a work-based learning style. We provide our students with a range of additional support during their programme and can help you get where you want to be.

Depending on your needs, we can offer a variety of support ensuring you succeed to the best of your ability. Traineeships are a great option if you are:

·               19-24* years old

·               Not currently in employment, training or education

·               Hold qualifications at GCSE or level 3 (typically A Levels or BTECs achieved at College) or no qualifications at all.

·               Are enthusiastic, reliable and ready to start or develop your career.

·               Would like to improve your existing English and Maths qualifications

Additional Information

Traineeships are delivered through a combination of classroom learning and practical experience. One of the biggest benefits of a Traineeship is the inclusion of a Work Experience Placement from week five of the programme. At this point all students will have 2 days a week on work placement with 3 days a week College based. We can work with you to ensure your industry experience is as tailored as possible to your chosen career pathway, working with employers in and around Fareham, Gosport, Portsmouth and Southampton who can provide you with valuable experience. Students are also able to claim up to £60 in travel expenses to cover these costs.


*Traineeships are available for individuals ages between 16-24, or 25 with an EHCP – please contact for more information.
