Ezi Pay Plan – Pay as you learn
As part of Next Step College’s commitment to making our courses accessible to everyone, we are offering a payment plan on all courses or group of courses with a total value in excess of £250.
When you enrol on a course, you now have the option of paying for your tuition in three monthly payments
The payment schedule for EZI Pay is as follows:
- 50% of total course/course’s value on course booking
- 25% 30 days from the original booking date
- 25% 60 days from the original booking date
This allows students to spread the cost of their learning over three month and is interest free with no administration charge.
By enrolling on a Next Step Nail & Beauty training course, you are agreeing to pay the full course fee. A student who withdraws in the middle of the course will still be charged the second and the third payments.
This offer is available to both new and current students.
