Finance plans - spread the cost of your studies

It's easier to pay for your course when you can spread the cost with low monthly payments. We have multiple options available and will work with you to choose a plan to suit you.

Finance options available

The way you pay for your course is flexible. We believe that your personal circumstances or finances should never get in the way of your education and shaping your future. 

At Open Study College we help you choose the best payment option to suit you. You can pay for your course upfront or spread the cost across monthly payments.  



We understand that sometimes paying a lump sum of money can be difficult, especially if you are on a tight budget. We have teamed up with our finance partner, etika (a trading name of etika Finance UK Ltd)Which means we can offer simple payment plans to make paying for your course much easier to manage. 

Spread the cost of your course and choose a finance term up to 36 months to suit you. We’re also currently offering 0% deposit which means you can enrol today and your first payment won’t be requested until OctoberFrom October your monthly payments could be as little as £11.62*. This offer is for a limited time only. 

*Based on a course costing £279 spread across 36 months with a 5% deposit
