Home/EU students

Paying your fees

At the University of Salford, the fee for all UK/EU students studying a full-time undergraduate degree is £9,000 a year. The fee for all UK/EU part-time students will vary depending on the number of credits taken each year.

If you are taking out a UK student loan for tuition fees from the Student Loans Company, payments are made by the Student Loans Company directly to the University for you.

If you are paying your tuition fees without a loan, you can pay your fees at any time during the application process. Find out how to pay the University by emailing

What if I’m being sponsored?

If you’re a UK or EU student, please email a copy of your sponsor letter to Alternatively, you can present your letter when you register at the University in person. We will only accept documentation from officially registered sponsors. When submitting your sponsor letter, please also provide your student ID number. Your student ID number is an eight-digit number starting with an @ sign. It is detailed in your offer letter and included in all our communications with you, once you have applied.

Bursaries and scholarships

One of the ways you can receive support with student finance is through our bursaries and scholarships scheme. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for one of our financial support packages to help with the costs of study.

Help from the Government

You might also qualify for extra financial help from the government. This is available to students on a low income, students with children or dependent adults, disabled students and those receiving NHS funding. Our askUS team can offer more information and advice about the help you might be eligible for. Click here to find out how you can contact them.

Repaying your student loan

You will only repay your student loan once you are earning over a certain amount. You don’t have to arrange repayments; this is done for you. Loan repayments are collected automatically from your pay, once your pay reaches the required amount. If you stop earning, your repayments will stop too.

Living costs

While you’re at university, you’ll need to budget for your living costs. You can use our budget calculator to get a better idea of how much money you will need. If you want to boost your funds while studying – and gain some valuable work experience at the same time – our Careers and Employability service can help you find a part-time job.

Funding for EU students

EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan from the UK government. Some EU students can also apply for maintenance funding, depending on how long you or your parents have been working in the UK. If you think that you may be eligible for maintenance funding, please contact our student support team, askUS.

If you are not eligible for maintenance funding, you are expected to have enough income to cover your living costs. In addition to tuition fees, we advise that you budget a minimum of £7,200 for accommodation, food, entertainment, transport, books, insurance and laundry. Depending on your lifestyle, you might require more or less than this. You can calculate your own living costs using the international student calculator
