    It is a highly intensive, fast-track route to higher education, where you will complete the equivalent of 3 A-Levels in one year, and requires attendance two nights per week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 6-9.15pm, as well as tutorials every two weeks (from 5pm) and substantial private study. These dates and times are non-negotiable and you are required to attend every session.

    The course fee is £2823, plus an upfront fee of £199 payable at the time of your enrolment.

    If you’re unable to pay the course fee upfront, you can choose to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan from Student Finance England (SFE) to help cover the cost. The Advanced Learning Loan is written off on completion of a Higher Education degree course. You can find more information about the Advanced Learner Loan www.citylit.ac.uk/advanced-learner-loans
