From 2018, the Government’s tertiary education fees free scheme means first-time learners of any age will be eligible for a year’s free study.

This means you can complete CUP with no tuition fees, come out with a certificate at the end, and then still have another semester of free fees to take advantage of when you start your chosen degree!
