Tuition Fee Loan

English or EU full-time or part-time students can apply online to Student Finance England for a tuition fee loan. This is paid directly to the College on your behalf.

Maintenance loans and grants (full-time students only)
Tuition fee loans pay for your course. Maintenance loans and grants help with living costs (e.g. accommodation, books and bills). Tuition fee and maintenance loans are repayable but maintenance grants are not. Your repayments are linked to your income. You only make repayments when your income is over £21,000 a year. If your income drops below this amount repayments stop.

Each month you pay back 9% of any income over £21,000.

Monthly loan repayments

Your income per year  Monthly repayments
£21,000 and under No repayments
£25,000 £30
£30,000 £67
£40,000  £142

After 30 years, if you have not paid back your loan any outstanding balance will be written off.
