Loans and grants

In the academic year 2018/19, most UK/EU students will be eligible for financial support to cover the cost of their tuition fees.

For new students starting in September 2018, you will only be required to repay any loans taken after you have finished your course and are earning over £25,000 per year (subject to terms and conditions).

In addition to tuition fee funding, UK students studying their first degree will also be eligible to apply for funding to help meet living costs.

The way in which you apply for student finance and the funding package available to you will depend on where you live:
