The cost of the course full time is £6000 per year, this is
£3000 less than other UCLan courses, and so at the end of the three
years if you complete the final year BA top up then you will have
saved £9000 and still come out with a degree.
The reason it is a two year foundation and then one year top up
is so we can charge this amount to save students money.
There are a range of financial support options to choose from.
