Finance for Initial Teacher Training
There’s financial help available if you’re studying to become a teacher. The type of help you can get will depend on the teacher training route you choose.
Initial Teacher Training: what financial help can you get?
All students taking an eligible course of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) are entitled to some form of financial help. There are a number of routes to qualifying as a teacher, and the type of help you can get depends on which one you choose.
Help available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students
If you’re doing a full-time undergraduate course of ITT, you can apply for Student Loans, grants and bursaries on the same terms as other full-time students doing a first higher education course.
Part-time and postgraduate students can’t usually apply for the full finance package aimed at full-time students. But you’ll qualify for elements of it for a course of ITT - whether you’re doing it full-time or part time, or as an undergraduate or postgraduate.
