It is important to remember that all eligible* students from the UK and EU, entering university in 2013, can study without paying a penny in tuition fees up-front, or during their course by taking out a tuition fee loan.
* Eligibility will depend on factors including where you live, the course you choose to study, where you study, and whether or not you already hold a higher education qualification. (Source: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.)
The amount of your living cost loan entitlement varies depending on whether you are also entitled to a non-repayable grant. See table below:
|Household income||Living cost loan||Non repayable grant||Total|
|£25,000 or less||£3,823||£3,354||£7,177|
**Please note: students from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should see their student finance body for details.
