If you are on a postgraduate School Direct course which is not salaried, you will have to pay tuition fees. The tuition fee for the Leeds Hub of our School Direct subjects for the year is set at £9,250, for the Bradford and East Yorkshire hubs the tuition fee is £8,000. For this you will receive both QTS and PGCE. Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of this tuition fee.  This is available through Student Finance England, who can also be contacted about maintenance loans which are available dependent upon your personal financial circumstances.

You can calculate an estimate of your loan repayments on the GOV.UK website.

Most subjects attract a tax free training bursary. The bursary and scholarship amounts for Trainees commencing training from September 2018 are indicated in the table below.

Secondary mathematics early-career payments.

Secondary mathematics trainees will receive 2 additional early-career payments of £5,000 each (£7,500 if teaching in specified areas of England) in their third and fifth year of teaching, if they have taught in a state-funded school in England since completing their teacher training course. These amounts are after tax, so teachers will receive the full amount as stated.
