Tuition fees 

The tuition fee for 2024 entry is £9,250 per year.  

If you’re a resident and ‘settled’ in the UK at the start of the first academic year of your course, you'll be able to apply for a government tuition fee loan, which will cover your fees.

Maintenance loans

Government support for living costs (called a maintenance loan) is available to undergraduate students living in England. 

  • The amount of loan you receive is based on an assessment of your household income by Student Finance England. It will vary depending on whether you live away from home, live at home with your parents or study at a university in London.  
  • If your household income is £25,000 or less, you’ll receive the maximum amount of maintenance loan.  
  • If you live in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man, you’ll need to apply for student finance via your relevant student finance agency.  
  • There are maintenance loans available for students who qualify for benefits. The maximum amount of maintenance loan is available for households with an income of £25,000 or less. 

How to apply 

Watch the Student Finance England video for everything you need to know about applying.  


After you graduate, your tuition fee and living cost loans will be combined into one sum. You don’t have to start paying anything back until the April after you’ve finished your course and only when you start earning over £25,000 per year.  

The amount you pay back is 9% of your income above £25,000 and repayments are made automatically through the tax system. Interest rates are based on the retail price index and any outstanding repayments will be written off after 40 years.
