Funding and loans

Undergraduate student loans

All UK full-time students can apply for a loan to cover their tuition fees. You need to apply via Student Finance England and if you and the course you are studying are eligible then the University is paid direct by student finance. The tuition fees that you see advertised are usually paid initially by the Government through the tuition fee loan, so you or your parents don’t have to save up beforehand.

Postgraduate taught student loans

If you’re thinking of studying a master’s degree, you could be eligible for a loan from the Government to help you study. You may also be eligible for a discount on the full fee, depending on where you’ve studied at undergraduate level.
