Fees and how to apply

Fees, funding and applying for your Professional Development Award.


There is a £200 fee payable on registration to your Professional Development Award programme. Module fees are on a pay-as-you-go basis. The fee that you are charged will depend on the module you intend to study (prices vary between departments) and your fee status.

Further information can be found on the individual course entries, or alternatively please email PD@uwe.ac.uk.


As this is a part-time programme, you will be required to fund your own tuition fees. You may be able to secure funding through employer sponsorship - view details on our postgraduate funding pages.

PDA undergraduate course options are not classed as a standard undergraduate degree, therefore student finance or a tuition fee loan are not available.

How to apply

You will need to complete the relevant Negotiated Learning Plan (NLP) and provide evidence of any previous learning you wish the University to consider and recognise as contributing towards your PDA:
