Funding Your Studies

At UCLan, we understand that entering into Higher Education can seem like a costly and daunting business for students and their families. It's important to consider all aspects of University life, and that's why we are always on hand to provide financial information and guidance when making that all important decision. The Government funding you could be eligible for is dependent on:

  • where you are from

  • what course you are studying

  • when you started / or are starting your studies

  • which studies you may have undertaken previously

We look forward to seeing many of you studying and enjoying life at UCLan in the near future.

NHS Courses

If you started a nursing, midwifery or allied health professional course after 1 August 2017, you will need to apply to the Student Loans Company for your tuition fees and maintenance loan, as you are no longer entitled to an NHS bursary.

Learning Support Fund

You may also qualify for some additional financial support through the Learning Support Fund such as:

  • Child Dependants Allowance - a grant of £1000 for eligible students who have parental responsibility for a dependent child
  •  Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses - for reimbursement for some of the additional cost of attending a practice placement as part of your course
  •  Exceptional Support fund – a grant of up to £3000 per academic year to students who can show that they have a shortfall between their income and expenditure which they are unable to manage by their own actions 

Postgraduate Funding

Masters Loans
Post Doctoral Loans

Unfortunately, students on Degree Apprenticeship courses are not eligible for any mainstream financial support through their funding bodies. They are also not eligible to apply for additional financial support through the university.
