The University offers courses at very reasonable prices with discounts for staff, students, alumni and those in receipt of the state pension. We are also delighted to be able to offer concessionary fees for students who receive state benefits with generous support from the John Hamilton Bequest.

We have 3 fee bands:

  • The 1st fee is the full course fee
  • The 2nd fee applies if you are in receipt of state retirement pension, are a full-time student, are member of University of Liverpool staff (paid by UoL) or Alumni
  • The 3rd fee applies if you receive any of the following (or are an unwaged dependent of someone who receives any of the following): Jobseekers Allowance, Working Tax Credit, Income Support, Housing Benefit, State Pensions Credit, Employment Support Allowance IR (Income Related), Universal Credit, PIP. Concessionary fees are available due to th egenerous support of the John Hamilton Bequest. 

Proof of entitlement to a concession will be requested each time that you enrol. Please contact us if you are unsure whether or not you qualify for a concession.


Most of our courses have credit attached to them. This means that you can opt to undertake assessment and gain academic credit. There is a small charge for the assessment /accreditation process (which is non-refundable unless we cancel the course). You can opt for assessment when enrolling on a course or once a course has started.

Choosing the Right Language Course

If you are interested in language courses and are not sure which level to select, the Self Assessment Grid can help you to gauge the most appropriate course for you.

Cancellation and Withdrawal

If we have to cancel a course because of low enrolments we will always inform you as quickly as possible and a full refund will be given. Refunds are identified on bank and credit/debit card statements as being from the University of Liverpool.

If you find that you have to withdraw from a course, you need to tell us, in writing, a minimum of 7 days before the course start date. No refunds are issued after this date.  All refunds are subject to an administrative charge of 10% of the relevant fee.
