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.
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.
The University undergraduate tuition fee may increase year on year in line with government policy. This will enable us to continue to provide the best possible educational facilities and student experience.
In 2017/18, subject to final confirmation from government, there will be an inflationary adjustment to fees to £9,250 for new and returning UK/EU students. In 2018/19 there may be an increase in fees in line with inflation.
We will update this information when fees for 2017/18 are finalised.
