Undergraduate and PGCE funding

Key facts ​​

No upfront tuition fees. You won’t have to pay any fees while you are studying; you can apply for a student tuition fee loan to cover the fees. This will be paid directly to the university. Tuition Fees for full-time undergraduate and PGCE courses will be £9,250 and £11,100 for Fast Track courses​.

You can also apply for a student maintenance loan to help towards your living costs up to £9,978​ if you live away from home to study and up to £8,400 if you stay at home. You can apply for student loans from March. You do not ​need to wait for a confirmed offer of a place on a course.

Additional non-repayable grants may be available for students with dependents and for students with disabilities.

Living cost loans and grants will be paid to students in three equal instalments over ​the academic year – one at the beginning of each term.

You will only start to repay the loan in the April following graduation if you are in employment and are earning a salary over £25,000. You will repay 9% of your income above £25,000. For example if you earn £30,000 you would repay £37.53 per month

Each course can vary in price. Fees​ are explained on the individual course pages.​​

Postgraduate funding

The majority of students who pursue postgraduate education usually support themselves through student loans, private savings, family support or sponsorship from an​ employer.

Postgraduate loan scheme

Students applying for taught and masters courses can benefit from a non means-tested loan​. If you’re studying for 2, 3 or 4 academic years, the loan will be divided equally across each year of your course. The loan will be a contribution towards the costs of study and paid directly into your bank account. Whether the loan is used towards fees, maintenance or other costs will be at your own discretion.
