What financial support is available in 2015?

There are no upfront costs. Tuition fee loans and loans for living costs are available for all students as well as grants and NUA bursaries, which take family income into account, and which you do not have to repay. Find how to apply for Statutory Support.

Tuition Fee Loan

  • Available to cover the full cost of your tuition
  • You don’t have to pay for your course upfront yourself
  • Only start paying back when you are earning over £21,000 per year

Maintenance Loan

The Student Maintenance Loan helps with living costs such as accommodation, food, clothes, travel and course expenses. This loan is available to new and existing eligible UK students and the amount students receive is dependent on household income and any maintenance grant received.

  • A loan of up to £5,740 will be available if you live away from home.
  • A loan of up to £4,565 will be available if you live with your parents.

Maintenance Grant

New full-time undergraduate students from lower income households are able to apply for a non-repayable Maintenance Grant of up to £3,387 a year to help with living costs such as food, accommodation and travel. The Maintenance Grant is paid in three instalments, at the beginning of each term, directly into students’ bank accounts.

  • If the household income is £25,000 or less students will receive a full Maintenance Grant
  • If family income is above £25,001 and below £42,620 students will receive a partial Maintenance Grant

Rates of interest

  • Interest on your loan will be applied at inflation (Retail Price Index – RPI) plus 3% while you are studying and up to the April after you leave university
  • From then, if you are earning below £21,000 interest will be applied at the rate of inflation
  • Once you are earning between £21,000 and £41,000 interest will be applied between RPI and RPI plus 3% on a scale depending on income
  • For graduates earning over £41,000 interest will be applied at RPI plus 3%
