Your Funding Options

Whether you decide to pay for the qualification yourself, get help from your employer or apply for a student loan, with RDI you will have affordable education at your fingertips. There are more ways to pay for your studies than ever before. For your peace of mind, we also uniquely offer a 30 day money back guarantee, meaning you can enrol on your chosen course and change your mind if it’s not for you.

Making learning affordable

By choosing a flexible payment method you can stay in control of your finances, focus on your studies and potentially graduate with no debt. Plus, by efficiently delivering quality learning we have made learning available to more people than ever before. Alternatively, you might be eligible for a student loan, meaning you pay nothing to begin your studies.

Instalments and Pay-as-you-go

  • Do I have to pay for everything in one go?

    Not always. You can sometimes pay as you go, rather than pay the full amount upfront. This means you only have to make a payment when you want to start the next module of your course. But it’s worth remembering that with some of our courses, you can complete modules in as little as three months, or even study two at the same time.

  • What do the fees include?

    We want to make sure there are no hidden extras. So our fees include: all the study materials you need and student handbooks, your tutor support, your student support coordinator, access to our virtual learning environment – ilearn, an online induction process and access to our Career Portal.

  • Do you offer scholarships?

    We don’t offer scholarships. We pride ourselves on offering excellent value for money for an internationally recognised qualification. Plus we help you stay in control of your finances through pay as you go, UK and other EU students may access government funding, and we even accept employer sponsorship and Tesco Clubcard vouchers.

  • Can I really afford it?

    There’s good evidence that getting a university qualification leads to better career prospects and a higher salary. You should see paying for higher education as an investment in your future. Of course, we understand it’s a big commitment, so we suggest you look at the various funding options available.
