Chemistry, languages, mathematics and physics trainees will receive 3 additional early-career payments of £2,000 each (or £3,000 each if teaching in specified areas of England) in their second, third and fourth year of teaching, if they have taught in a state-funded school in England since completing their teacher training course. These amounts are after tax, so teachers will receive the full amount as stated.

Tuition fees are set at £9,250. Home and EU students may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees charged. This is available through Student Finance England.

Home students in England may also be eligible for a student maintenance loan to help towards accommodation and other living costs. More information on the student loan for maintenance can be found on the GOV.UK website.

Home students in England may also be eligible for a non-repayable maintenance grant, which is means-tested. As full-time students, trainees are eligible for assistance with Council Tax for the duration of the training programme.
