FEE STRUCTURE

Our maximum fee for Home students is £7500. For further information about Home fee status, please refer to The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.

If you are studying for your first university-level qualification you can apply to get a loan from the UK government to cover the cost of your tuition fees whilst you are studying. Students who have previously studied in Higher Education may not receive support for their course and should contact Student Finance England for clarification. Depending on circumstances, you may also be entitled to a maintenance loan .

You will only start to pay back this loan after you have left university and you are earning over £25,000 a year. Your payments will stop if your earnings drop below this level.

International students will be charged £9,000 per annum and the college will be happy to help you with any CAS or Visa enquiries.

STUDENT FINANCE

A student loan can help you to cover the cost of your degree. You can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan, to cover the cost of your course, and a Maintenance Loan, to help you with the cost of living to cover things like rent and food.

We recommend that you apply for your Student Finance when it opens in February of the year you’re planning to study, as you only have three months to apply.

We know that student finance can be a tad confusing, but our expert admissions team will be able to help you with anything you’re stuck with.
