When should I enrol?
In short: as soon as you are ready. All live course dates are available for you to enrol on.
Unlike most training centres SEM has a limit on lecturer to student ratio and keeps its class sizes small. We therefore have limited availability and courses fill up in advance. We recommend registering as soon as you are ready to secure your place to avoid disappointment.

Can I get funding for the course?
Options 1 – 4: Get instant Student Finance with Omni Capital
Prospective students are able to get an instant online decision to fund training though our partner Omni Capital. To apply, you must be 18 or over, and have been living in the UK for at least 3 years before your course starts. You can apply by clicking ‘enrol’ on the course page to begin the finance application. Please note student finance can only be applied for within 3 months or less of the course start date.
You can apply for the full amount of course fees, and choose an affordable monthly repayment that suits your budget. Other benefits of student finance are that the baseline course price is based on our ‘advanced’ cheaper price. You will need to pay a minimum 5% downpayment on the course fees at the point of successful application, although you have the option to make anything up to a 50% downpayment on course fees (please contact SEM for this).
Options 5 – 6: Fund the course yourself
You can choose ‘advanced’ and ‘termly’ payment plans. An advanced payment would be required before starting the course to secure your place. A termly payment plan requires the first instalment to be paid no later than 1 calendar month before the course start date, with termly instalments at 10 week intervals. At the school’s discretion, a monthly payment plan can be arranged if there is a guarantor, if other finance routes such as student finance are not a viable option. Please contact us about this if you need more advice.
If you are European, a British citizen but have not lived in the UK for the past three years, or have low or no credit score, then payment options 5 and 6 are the relevant options for you. We would also be happy to discuss a flexible monthly payment plan between yourself and SEM, as an alternative to loan funding. Please contact us promptly to arrange this.
