Course Funding

How does funding work for CPBA courses?

At Candor Professional Beauty Academy, we offer Level 2 and Level 3 courses.

If you choose do a Level 2 course, it will be free if you meet the eligibility criteria.


In order to be eligible for any funding, you must be: 19 years old on the first day of the course for Level 3 courses and 19 years old at the 31st of August for a course starting in the next academic year which is September to August for Level 2 courses; you must be a citizen of a country within the European Economic Area/EU/UK or have the Right to Abode in the UK; and, you must have been an ordinary resident in the EEA/EU/UK for at least the previous three years on the first day of learning.

The European Economic Area includes the EU countries, also Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

Remember, if you have been living in any other countries apart from these listed in the past three years, you won’t be eligible for the funding. Don’t forget, that the funding doesn’t cover the cost of your kit and uniform.

If you choose to do a Level 2 course, it will be free of charge if you meet the eligibility criteria. Dependant on your age, income, and previous qualifications achieved, you may be asked to pay £100 registration fee to be checked and verified by the admin department.

Extra Eligibility Criteria

If you choose to enrol to a Level 3 Hairdressing course, you have to be 24 years old on the first day of your course or to have another qualification achieved. You have to provide a copy of your L3 diploma at the point of registration.
