Fees and Funding for Degree Students

Don’t let finance hold you back. With no upfront fees to pay1, funding you don’t need to pay back until you start earning over £26,5753, low-cost loans and a whole range of other incentives, financing your course may be easier than you think.

Fees and loans

Competitive fees

Our tuition fees for full-time undergraduate courses offer great value for money.

Tuition fees for undergraduate courses starting January 2021 are £8,335 per year.
Tuition fees for undergraduate courses starting September 2021 are £8,7502 per year. 

Fees for part-time students and those studying part of a qualification

Students studying part-time, or part of a higher education qualification (for example, a proportion of the modules), will be charged on a pro rata basis. Part-time degree course pages on this website feature the price you will pay.

Students undertaking a standard higher education course on a part-time basis must pay the full annual tuition fee. It may however be possible to pay the fee in instalments rather than the full cost upfront.

Fees for Higher National Certificate (HNC) students

Fees for HNC courses starting January/February 2021 are £8,335 per year.
Fees for HNC courses starting September 2021 are £8,7502 per year. 

However they may be studied over multiple years so payment can be staggered.

For autumn starts running over 2 full academic years, payment is 50% per year at the start of each year.
For HNCs starting in January/February that run over 3 academic years, payment is 50% per year for the first 2 years and nothing in year 3. 

A tuition fee loan with nothing to pay upfront

Student loans are available to cover the full cost of your tuition fees.1 You don’t have to pay anything upfront1 and there’s nothing to pay back until you’re qualified and earning at least £26,575 a year3.

A maintenance loan to help makes ends meet during study

If you’re studying a full-time course you can apply for a maintenance loan to help with living costs. Maintenance loans depend on your household income: if you’re under 25 and living with parents/guardians the maximum you can get is £7,747 while those over 25 or living away from home could get up to the maximum maintenance loan of £9,203 (£10,490 if entitled to benefits)4.

Nothing to repay until you’re earning £26,575 a year

The great thing about both tuition fee and maintenance loans is that you don’t need to pay anything back until you’re earning at least £26,5753 a year. The table below gives you an idea of what your monthly repayments could be.
