CIFE colleges do not receive government funding so they must cover their running expenses by charging fees. Even though many colleges are either charities or 'not-for-profit', fees can be high because teaching groups in CIFE colleges are small and teacher salaries are a major proportion of costs. Our Fees at CIFE colleges page includes links to the Fees page on each college's website. Most CIFE colleges have set aside money to help worthwhile students pay fees, and this article answers the questions we often get asked about help with fees at CIFE colleges.
