Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)

If you are paying for your course via funding from a third party, there are a number of things you should bear in mind before you apply.

Securing your place on the course

All students (regardless of funding source) must confirm and secure their place by providing payment of either a first instalment or full payment of course fees.

If somebody else is paying for your course

If you are receiving funding via a third party (eg. From HEE, your employer or other source), it is your responsibility to ensure the fees are paid by the agreed dates (you may wish to pay the instalments yourself and claim the money back from us once your funder has made the full payment). 

If for any reason your third party funding is not confirmed or received, then you will remain liable for the course fee and a refund will not be made. 

If you have applied for a student loan

If you have applied for a student loan from the Student Loan Company (SLC) you may (depending on when you applied for your loan) be in receipt of your entitlement letter without conditions. If so SLC will pay your course fee directly to us. 

If you are yet to receive your entitlement letter, you can pay a £50 deposit until the start date of the course, after which you will be required to cover fees due until the loan is confirmed.  When you send us your entitlement letter, any instalments paid by you will be refunded to you and subsequent instalments will be covered directly between SLC and the Institute. 

Please note that student loans only cover one course per year. 

*Please note that ICE is not a part of the 24+ loan scheme. Applicants should apply to the SLC.

If you cancel your place

Please note that in line with our standard refund policy, liability for course fees is with you and not your funder. Please visit our Cancellations and Refunds policy page for more information.
