In order to support higher education students with course fees, a number of sources of financial assistance are available from both us and the Government to help you with your fees and living expenses.


A Global Scheme payment of £500 will be made to 2016/17 entrants on successful completion of the academic year. In addition those from low income households will receive £500 at the end of the first semester to support their studies. It is expected that students can use these funds to participate in field trips, events to enhance their studies and resources for their courses.


If you’re starting a full-time higher education course, the main types of financial help you may receive are:

  • a Tuition Fee Loan to cover your fees in full
  • a Maintenance Loan
  • a bursary from your university or college


New students and most continuing students, who started their courses on or after 1st September 2013, can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £9,000 per year to cover the full cost of tuition. Student Finance England will pay the fees directly to the University Centre and you will not have to pay back this loan until you have finished your studies and are earning over £21,000 a year.

**Only available to student on ARU accredited courses


Full-time students can also apply for a Maintenance Loan from the Government to help with living costs. These are paid into your bank account at the start of each term. The amount of Maintenance Loan you can borrow depends on your circumstances, including your household income, what year of study you are in, where you live and study, and any Maintenance Grant you may be eligible for.


Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans are rolled into one for repayment purposes. You only pay back your loan once you’ve left university and are earning over £21,000. Your monthly repayment will be based on how much you earn, not how much you borrowed. You will repay 9p for every pound you earn over the £21,000 repayment threshold. So if your salary is £25,000 a year, you repay nine percent of £4,000, which works out as £30 a month. Financial calculations are based on 2015/16 criteria.


In addition to the above, you may also be eligible for one of the following sources of financial help:

  • Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs)
  • Parents’ Learning Allowance
  • Adult Dependants’ Grant
  • Childcare Grant
