How does Flatiron School’s Deferred Payment Plan in the UK work?
Flatiron School’s Deferred Payment Plans (DPPs) make our career-change tech education more accessible for on-campus students in the UK. Your tuition payments only begin once you’ve left the program and are earning at least a minimum monthly income. We just need a refundable £1,000 deposit before you begin.
New students enrolling in Flatiron School On-Campus Programs (Software Engineering, Data Science, UX/UI Design) who are UK citizens living in the UK.
All that’s required is a deposit of £1,000 before class to lock in your seat. After that, you don’t pay until you are hired and earning the minimum monthly gross income, including variable interest, calculated using the Office for National Statistics Retail Price Index.
As a Flatiron School student, you’ll work 1:1 with a dedicated career coach to CV review, employer outreach, and interview prep — so you can change careers with confidence.

Terms & FAQs
How does payment work?
After making an initial deposit of £1,000, students in our on-campus courses can defer their tuition fee until after they have graduated or left the program.*
Once you leave Flatiron School, you’ll have a three-month grace period before payments begin. After the three-month period has passed, and you are earning a minimum of £1,666.67 per month (annualised to £20,000 per year) in total pre-tax income, you will begin monthly payments at 10% of total pre-tax monthly income. You will continue to make payments until the deferred tuition is fully paid, plus any interest accrued, or 120 months have passed since the end of your grace period, whichever comes first.
You will set up monthly payments via the EdAid platform. On the 1st of each month, payments will be initiated from your designated bank account by Direct Debit.
