Student Fees and Finance Policies

OCA courses are around a third of the cost of equivalent courses at mainstream campus universities.

On this page you’ll find our Student Fees Policy, Student Debt Policy, and Study Discount Policy. These detail what fees apply to who, how our fees are set, and anything else that affects fees. Also, you’ll find detail on what happens if you accrue a debt with OCA, the impact, and how OCA works with you to pay that off. And lastly, the Study Discount Policy covers the discounts applicable to partner organisations of OCA, and other miscellaneous discounts.
