Instalment plans and financial support options

It is important that our qualifications are as accessible as possible to our students, particularly when it comes to financing. We have provided some flexible payment options, available for certain qualifications*, and listed other financial support opportunities, which we hope can help.

* Unfortunately, there are currently no payment plans available for ICA Certificates, ICA Specialist Certificates , ICA Learning short courses and ICA Essentials courses .

Instalment plans

Spread the cost of your course payment, instead of a one-off payment. The first instalment will be taken at the time of enrolment and the monthly instalments are then taken on that day each subsequent month thereafter. Select ‘instalment plan’ when choosing your payment options on the online enrolment form.

ICA Advanced Certificates

An interest-free instalment plan of four equal monthly payments is available for self-funded advanced certificate courses.
