Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loans

You may be able to borrow money to help pay for university or college tuition fees and to help with living costs. 

When you complete the main student finance application you'll be asked whether you consent to Student Finance England sharing your details with your university or college. Giving your consent allows Student Finance England to use information on our behalf to assess what you're entitled to.

Find out how the application process works and what you need to do to apply here. To make sure your first payment is ready at the start of term - don't wait until you've been offered a place on a course.  You’ll need to apply separately for each year of your course.

The fastest and easiest way to apply for student finance is to apply online. Your parents or partner may need to supply financial information to support your application. If you apply online, they will be able to supply their information online as well.

Postgraduate Masters’ Loans

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) has confirmed that postgraduate masters' loans to a maximum of £10,000 will be available for the academic year 2016-17 to all students under the age of 60. The government expects that the largest take-up of these loans will be from students applying for one-year, full-time courses. However, part-time study at a minimum of 50% intensity of full-time study is in scope. Eligible programmes will include distance learning. To find out more see this postgraduate loan guide from Student Finanace England.

Support when you need it most

University Hardship Fund

Plymouth Marjon University also has the University Hardship Fund to assist UK students in exceptional financial difficulty such that continued attendance on their course may be at risk.  In assessing hardship, all available sources of funding, including bursaries and student loans, must have been utilised by the student.  All awards from the University Hardship Fund are discretionary.
