Further financial planning support is provided via the pastoral care network and the Finance & Administration Manager can also provide additional advice on request.
In regards to College fees, the College provides students with the option of using payment plans that are tailored to meet the students’ specific circumstances and which allow regular instalments. These are created by the Finance & Administration Manager and are introduced in the enrolment process. During the period of enrolment, those who are experiencing difficulty in their financial commitments to the College are identified by the Finance & Administration Manager and administration staff.
