For Open Languages Courses (Modern Languages)

Fee details are included in each course description.

Standard course fee: this applies by default where evidence of eligibility for a concessionary fee cannot be provided.

Concessionary fee: this applies if you receive (or you are an unwaged dependent on someone that receives) one of the following UK means-tested benefits, or if you receive a University of Liverpool means-tested or income-related bursary: -

  • Universal Credit
  • Pension credit
  • Council Tax Reduction (Please note that this is different to Council Tax discounts, exemptions and disregards)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income Support
  • Housing Benefit
  • Working Tax credit
  • Child Tax credit 

Proof of entitlement to a concession will be requested each time you enrol. Concessionary fees are available due to the generous support of the John Hamilton Bequest. 

Please note that we are unable to offer concessionary fees to those who receive non-means tested benefits (such as PIP/disability living allowance, new-style Job Seekers Allowance, careers/attendance allowances or contribution-based allowances).

Any additional course costs, such as books, trips or entrance fees, are clearly indicated in course descriptions on our website. 

Postgraduate students who are taking OL modules to support their PGT/PGR programme may be entitled to pay the concessionary course fee; the fee is usually paid by your main teaching/research department upon their approval - please contact us to arrange this.
