Financial Commitments

The cost of the Encounter School of Mission is £900

Students will need to work out in advance some form of ongoing financial support to cover their fees and their entire living expenses for the year. We recognise there is a level of faith required in raising support but our value of personal responsibility and self-management means that students should take full responsibility for meeting their financial commitments. This could be from personal savings or from ongoing support through their local church or small group. Please note: there is no remuneration or financial help from Causeway Coast Vineyard towards fees or living costs.

Living costs
You will be responsible for your rent and all other living expenses. We can help arrange accommodation for you if you are from outside the Causeway Coast area. This accommodation will be mainly in shared houses. We have tried to estimate a rough guide of monthly living costs for necessities per person here in Northern Ireland. Couples or families intending to come will need to budget accordingly per person as the costs shown below are estimated per person based on shared accommodation. Everything has been priced on a monthly basis and is simply an estimated cost for each expense. (All in GBP – British Pound Sterling)

Estimate of Monthly Costs:
Rent: Sharing a 4 bedroom house) £170
Utility Bills: £40
Public Transport: £70
Food: £100
Miscellaneous: £20
Total Estimated Monthly Costs -  £400

Students will be required as part of the application form to sign a commitment agreeing to the financial implications of attending Encounter School of Mission as outlined previously; that they agree to organise their support in advance of starting; and that they agree that it is their responsibility to cover their entire living expenses for the year on time.

Early Withdrawal / Expulsion 
Due to students having committed to the course in advance, if any students decide to leave the school early or are removed from the course for discipline reasons, they are required to cover any costs incurred throughout the remainder of the year. Examples of this include: rent, flights, course fees
