Financial Support - How We Can Help You
No Upfront Fees to Pay
New full-time undergraduates from the UK or EU who qualify for a student loan do not pay tuition fees upfront. These costs are covered by the Tuition Fee Loan provided by the Student Loans Company.
If you apply for a tuition fee loan and meet the requirements, the Student Loans Company (SLC) will pay your tuition fees.
You do not have to pay anything until you finish your studies and are earning at least £21,000 a year. Repayments are made at the rate of 9% of income above £21,000. For example, a graduate earning £25,000 a year would repay less than £7.50 a week.
For 2014 entry, the University of Lincoln fee for all full-time UK or EU undergraduate courses will be £9,000* a year.
You may also be eligible for a maintenance loan and/or a non-repayable maintenance grant towards your living costs while you study, the amount of which will depend on your household income.
*Returning students who started before 2012 will continue to pay at the rate agreed when they started. Please contact the Student Funding Team for further details.
What's Included in Your Fees
At the University of Lincoln, in addition to providing access to the normal teaching and learning facilities you would expect to find included in your tuition fee such as: library materials, laboratories, laboratory equipment, consumables and IT equipment, we will also cover other necessary costs where these arise from studying modules which are a compulsory part of your programme of study. This is a new initiative and full details will appear on course information pages.
