Paying For Your Course

Tuition fees are set by the University or College and this loan is paid directly to them. As a full-time student, you can apply for a loan to cover the full cost of your undergraduate course, up to £9,250.

The amount you can borrow depends on where you live and your household income. There is also extra support for those with special circumstances. For example, if you have children or adult dependants, a disability, long-term health condition, mental-health condition, or specific learning difficulty such as Dyslexia or Dyspraxia.

- Full-time students : Up to £9,250

- Part-time students : Up to £6,935 (Your course must have 'course intensity' of 25% or more)

Maintenance Loan for the 2019-20 academic year

The maintenance loan is designed to help you with your living costs while studying for a degree e.g. food, rent and travel. It is paid directly into your bank account.

The amount you get depends on your household income, course intensity and where you live while studying.

How are these loans paid back?

  • You must pay back any loans you borrow, including interest, but not until the April after you finish your course, or the April four years after the start of your course - whichever comes first- and only then, if your income is over the repayment threshold.
  • Repayments are based on your income, not on what you have borrowed.
  • You only start repaying the loans once you are earning over £25,000 a year, "2083 a month or £480 a week.
  • Repayments are 9% of everything earned in excess of £25,000. If your income drops below this amount, repayments will stop automatically.
  • After 30 years, regardless of what you have already repaid the debt is wiped. If you never earn over £21,000 the you will never have to repay the loan.
