You may be eligible for a student loan from the Student Loan Company (SLC) to cover the cost of fees. Students on full-time programmes can also apply to the SLC for a maintenance loan to help with your living costs.
You will only start repaying your tuition fee and maintenance loans once you’ve left your course and your income is over £27,295* per year. Further details regarding student loans and funding can be accessed via the Government website.
