Most new and continuing full-time UK and EU undergraduate and new part-time undergraduates will be able to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to fund their studies. The same funding opportunities are not available for postgraduate study with Professional and Career Development Loans being one of the few options.

If you are paying your own fees or where funding is being provided through sponsorship, loan etc. and has yet to be confirmed you will be sent an invoice in the first semester which includes details of the fees charged, payment dates and a details of how to make your payments. You are responsible for making sure that fee payments are made on or before the instalment dates. If you consider that you should not have received an invoice or that the fees charged are incorrect, please contact the Customer Accounts Team in the first instance.

It is important that you keep your contact information such as address, phone number and e-mail address current through the MyUCLan interface.
