Full, Concessionary and Senior Fees

Full fee

The full fee is paid by everyone who doesn’t qualify for the senior, or concessionary fee.


Senior fee

Some of our courses are available with a reduced fee for seniors.

You may be able to pay the senior fee if you:

 Are aged 65 years or over at the start of the course.

AND

 Have a household income of less than £15,276 a year or rely entirely on a state pension.

The government don't offer an automatic concession for retired people, so the senior fee is entirely subsidised by City Lit. Due to this, we offer a senior fee on some of our daytime courses.
If you wish to pay the senior fee please select the senior fee option in the checkout as you book your course online, or let us know when booking by telephone.
