Writtle College Fees

Tuition Fees for the Academic Year 2013/14

Writtle College sets tuition fees for one academic year at a time. These tuition fees relate to the 2013/14 academic year only. It is usual for tuition fees to increase each year. If your course lasts for more than one academic year, the fees due for your second and subsequent years of study may therefore be different to the fee advertised and charged for your year of entry and may be higher than for the first year. Part-time students will pay a fee pro rata to the relevant full-time fee for the same course in each academic year in which they undertake study. Part-time study is not available to International students due to UKBA Regulations.

Every effort was made to ensure that the information concerning fees and other matters set out in this table was correct at the time of printing. The right is reserved to amend fees at any time.
