Our Fees

Crossfields Institute Fees List from May 2017

Crossfields Institute specialises in the development of integrative and holistic specialist qualifications and programmes. Unlike other similar organisations, the Institute does not rely on large learner numbers to support its business model, we offer to work with niche sectors that other organisations would be unlikely to work with due to lower learner numbers.

For this reason our fees are set at levels that allow us as a charity to cover our operating costs and reflect the heavy regulatory activity that we carry out behind the scenes on behalf of our centres and learners. All registration fees are individually set taking into consideration the level, volume and subject content of the programme or qualification. Please note that the registration fees below are fees charged to centres. Learner fees are set by the centres and include the registration fee of the learners to the Awarding Organisation (Crossfields Institute)
