Fees, concessions and refunds
Medway Adult Education provides many learning opportunities
sponsored by the Skills Funding Agency.
Eligibility conditions will apply to those courses.
Fees are changed according to regulations relevant to particular
courses. Some courses are eligible for concessions on fees, please
ask enrolment staff for details. Phone 01634

Many of our classes are subsidised by the Skills
Funding Agency. This funding is available to 19-year-olds and
older who have been living continuously for three years in the
United Kingdom (UK), or are a European Union (EU) national (or
spouse or child of an EU national) who has been resident
continuously in an EU country for at least the last three years.
You may still be able to enrol if you do not meet this criteria.
- It is a requirement of the Skills Funding Agency that learners
who are enrolled on courses with qualifications must be aiming to
gain a qualification and therefore need to register with the
relevant examination board at an early stage in the course. An
examination fee may be payable - please enquire.
- Any examination fees paid after the due date will be subject to
an additional £5 administration fee.
You can pay fees by standing order if the course is 12 weeks or
longer and costs more than £94. Download a Medway Adult
Education standing order form
Many courses involve additional costs which are detailed on the
course information sheet.
- Refunds are only issued to learners who withdraw more
than two weeks before the start date. A £10 administration
charge will be deducted
- After the course has started, refunds are only given if the
course is closed. The amount refunded will be a pro-rate amount
calculated on the length of time the course ran.
There is a fund available offering some limited financial
support to learners who receive means-tested benefits and are
studying for qualifications. The Discretionary Learner
Support Fund offers assistance with childcare, travel
costs, tuition and examination fees.
