The purchase of modules is determined by two things: the number of credits and the length of study period. A few modules have individual prices, reflecting the fact that the study material supplied is notably smaller or larger than the standard amount.
For students who intend to undertake a significant number of modules, we offer a discount. This discount rate assumes that you will complete 120 credits of study within a three year period. If you take longer then you will need to pay a supplement on all outstanding modules. You may choose to pay in a single lump sum, by monthly standing order, or in two or three amounts, provided the full sum is paid within one calendar year. This offer protects you against future price rises.
If you are unemployed, handicapped or disadvantaged in some other way, we are usually able to offer a 20% discount on all the prices. You will need to provide photocopied evidence of your status.
We will also consider requests from long-term missionaries for a similar discount. We would need proof from your Mission Board of your status, and we would want to discuss your financial situation further before granting the discount.
Married couples where both partners wish to study may share study material. The rate for the spouse is then reduced by 50%.
You can pay by Visa or Mastercard by calling the open learning department. We strongly advise you not to send credit card details in an email. A 2% charge will be added to the basic amount to cover bank charges at our end.
You can arrange for money to be transferred directly into our bank account. We will provide the details of our bank account by phone or letter.
Posting a cheque
Cheques must be made out in British pounds sterling for the full amount.
If you visit LST in person, you may also pay in cash.
