The School Direct training programme is funded by tuition fees paid by the trainee.
There is lots of financial support available to help you train to be a teacher. You could be eligible for a tax-free bursary or scholarship. You can apply for a tuition fee loan so you do not need to pay the fee upfront, as well as a maintenance loan to support your living costs. More information is available at the links below.
If you teach maths, you could get £30,000 – a £20,000 tax-free bursary while you train and a further £10,000 after tax once in teaching.keyboard_arrow_rightSchool Direct fees and funding on the University of Brighton website keyboard_arrow_rightDepartment for Education information on bursaries and scholarships
If you enrol on the fee-based training School Direct course to teach secondary-level chemistry, geography, mathematics or physics and have a 2.1 degree or above you can apply for a scholarship from the professional subject body.
As well as tax-free funding, scholarships provide an excellent opportunity to access resources and support from a community of scholars as soon as your course begins.
