Financial support for undergraduate UK and EU students: 2017-2018

You may be worried about the cost of coming to university but there is financial support available. A government loan to cover your tuition fees is available to all UK students and you may also be eligible for a bursary.

Please note some financial support is available for UK students only and is not available for EU students.

Tuition fee loan

(UK and EU students)

You don’t pay for tuition up front. The government will provide a loan to cover your full tuition charges. You or your parents don’t have to contribute anything now – you start to pay them back yourself once you graduate and are earning at least £21,000 a year.

Eligible part-time students also have access to loans for tuition fees. They won’t have to pay upfront as long as it’s their first degree.

To apply for a tuition fee loan please contact Student Finance England.  

Repaying your loan

Repayments will be 9% of any income above £21,000, so the amount you repay each month will depend on your earnings. Examples of monthly repayments for loans covering tuition and living costs:

Salary Monthly Repayments
£21,000 £0
£21,500 £4
£24,000 £23
£25,000 £30
£27,000 £45
£30,000 £68

Repayments will be deducted automatically from your pay packet. All outstanding repayments will be written off after 30 years.
