Unionlearn Fee Discount
The University of Wolverhampton has signed a three-year agreement with TUC unionlearn which means that from the 1st January 2016, new students who are full members of a union affiliated to the Trades Union Congress (TUC), are eligible for a 10% discount on tuition fees.
To be eligible applicants must be:
New entrants to the University of Wolverhampton enrolling on a part-time course from January 2016
Enrolling on an Undergraduate or Postgraduate course leading to a qualification (eg not a stand-alone CPD module)
Full union members applying as individual learners on the course start date
Paying their tuition fees themselves – either directly, via a Career Development Loan or UK Government Tuition Fee Loan. Tuition fees that are either paid directly via an employer or on a course provided by the University to a specific organisation are excluded from this discount scheme.
Not studying for an equivalent or lower qualification (ELQ)
Be able to provide a letter, signed by their Union Learn Representative (ULR) or Full-time Officer to verify union membership within 21 days of this enrolment *
Students in receipt of the unionlearn discount will not be eligible for any other discount or bursary from the University
The 10% discount will be applied to each year of the course and for a maximum of three years
How it works
The discount takes the form of a 10% discount on the course fee for the year.
*The letter must be received (either by your Student Centre or uploaded via e-vision) within 21 days of the start of the course, and must include the following information:
The name of the Trade Union of which you are a member
Your membership number
The date your membership of the Union commenced
Name and signature of unionlearn representative of Full-Time Officer
Date of signature
Depending on personal circumstances union members may be entitled to financial assistance from the government that may be more financially beneficial than receiving this discount.
