Student Finance

What you need to know

The UK Government’s student finance package includes:

  • Tuition fee loans (covering the cost of UK-based university tuition; this is not income-assessed)
  • Maintenance loans (to help with cost of living; this is partly income-assessed)
  • Supplementary grants (for students with particular special personal circumstances or needs)

Loans, grants and funding

Our Student Engagement Officers can help you identify sources of funding which you might be eligible for. They can also guide you on the Student Finance application process.

If you choose to access the Government’s student finance tuition fee loan, you do not have to pay your tuition fees up-front.
