Employers and Self-Employed Discount

We offer a discount of £500 per level to employers who are supporting their employees to study with IDI. Students who are self-employed can also benefit from this discount.

We can also arrange a group price for employers who want to support a number of employees.

For details of payment options and to find out how this could benefit you and your business please contact us on 0131 257 4022 or Freephone 0800 917 1118 or by e-mail:

Without the employer discount I don’t think it would have been possible for me to study with IDI.

The examples below illustrate how this could benefit you:

Course Standard Fee Student/employer pays
MA £6,000 £5,500
BA (Hons) £4,500 per level £4,000

Employers can also make a partial contribution on behalf of an employee and the £500.00 discount would still apply. For example:

Course Standard Fee Employer Pays Student Pays
MA £6,000 £5,000 £500
BA (Hons) £4,500 per level £3,000 £1,000

* The Employers discount scheme cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer except the Recommend a Friend scheme.

** Employers can choose to pay any amount towards a student’s fees. In these circumstances the student would be liable for the remainder of the course fees.
