Tuition Fee Loan

Eligible full time UK undergraduate students do not need to find the funding to cover the cost of their tuition fees either before or during University. Instead they can apply through the Student Loans Company for a tuition fee loan to help them cover the cost of their tuition fees. The tuition fee loan is paid directly to the University and means the cost of fee to you is deferred until after you graduate. It is not possible to defer payment of tuition fees through any other method. Click here to find out more about when you will need to start repaying your fee loan.

Fee loan amount

Tuition fee loans are not income assessed. You can borrow up to the amount you are being charged for your fees. If you commenced your course from 2012 you can borrow up to £9,250 and if you commenced your course before 2012 you can borrow £3,465. Your eligibility for a tuition fee loan can also be affected if you have previously undertaken study.

Students from Wales

A Tuition Fee Loan can be taken out to cover the first £4,296 of tuition fees. You can also apply for a fee grant of up to £4,954 to cover the remainder of your fees.
