While it can be very rewarding, academic study is also a challenging experience for almost every student.

Our student support team are there to help you, from mentoring students who are new to or out of practice in academic-style writing to offering regular pastoral care and emotional support.

While they vary significantly, our three key teaching sites are all engaging and welcoming learning spaces.

The specific course fees you will pay will depend on what kind of degree you wish to study. If you’re a part-time student, you may be able to pay over a longer period of time.

Plus, you may be eligible for our bursary. It goes without saying that if you do not apply, you will never know whether a St Augustine’s education would have been possible. Not all applicants are successful, but assistance terms can be generous to those who are, though this will not amount to free education.

We also offer a Transformational Bursary to a limited number of students whose circumstances warrant full financial support.

Learn more about fees and finance

Unlike many other colleges, we accept applications throughout the year. For most of our undergraduate courses, you don’t need to have recent academic experience to be accepted.
