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.

Student Finance England have produced a new, in-depth series of films covering everything students need to know about student finance, including what you can get, how to apply, what evidence you might need to send and how you repay. They have also produced films covering everything parents want to know about student finance.

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.

Teacher Training funding

Funding for PGCE & unsalaried School Direct

Students on PGCE and unsalaried School Direct courses can apply for funding to help with tuition fees and living costs.
The type of funding is the same as undergraduate funding and any previous study during your undergraduate course is not taken into account regarding eligibility.
For example if you had an interruption or restart year during your undergraduate course with additional funding you would still be eligible for funding for a eligible teacher training course.

Please see our tuition fee and maintenance loan section linked below for further information on the type of funding available and how to apply.

You may also be eligible for a teacher training bursary dependant on entry grades and subject taught. More information can be found on the Get Into Teaching website.
You do not need to apply for this bursary as it is an automatic process administered by our Admissions department on application to the university.

More information regarding Teacher Training funding is available here.

Finance for postgraduates

Postgraduate Masters’ Loans

Students on eligible Masters courses can apply for a non-means tested Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,609. Applications usually open around June for the following acdemic year.

PGCE and School Direct courses are not eligible for the Postgraduate Loan but instead need to apply for funding from Student Finance England. Please see our Teach Training Funding section on this webpage for further information.

Students can apply to the fund once they are fully registered at the University.
