Fees and Funding

Now you’ve received an offer from us, you may be starting to think about your student funding and finance options. The below information provides up-to-date resources to help guide you through the student finance process.

The Student Room is an excellent resource for all things money-related, and we’d recommend you explore their money pages for guidance on applying and entitlements. There is also specific information for students from EU countries.

Student Finance England recommends you apply by Wednesday 31 May if your course begins in September.

  • Study Now, Pay Later

    If you are a first-time undergraduate student from England or the EU, you can apply to have your tuition fees paid by Student Finance England via their website.

    Applicants from Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales have different options.

    Tuition fee loans will be paid directly to the University, are not dependent on your household income, and are only repayable once you earn over £21,000 a year.

    Applicants for courses in Nursing, Midwifery and the Allied Healthcare Professions will also need to apply for a student loan. The Funding Clinic is a useful resource for students of these courses.

    BA (Hons) Social Work may attract a Social Work Bursary from year 2 onwards, in addition to the standard Student Finance England package of support.
