UK/EU full time undergraduate students are eligible for a tuition fee loan. Loan repayments are deferred until after graduation.
Tuition fee loans are paid directly to the University once you enrol on your course.
Once you have graduated and are earning over £21,000 per year, you will pay nine per cent of your income above £21,000. For example, if your salary is £25,000, you would pay nine per cent of £4,000 which is £30 per month. Loan repayments are usually taken automatically from your salary along with tax and National Insurance contributions.
If you are enrolled on an NHS funded course, your tuition fees will be paid by the NHS. For more information, please visit the Health Sciences website.
If you are unsure of how to pay your fees please contact the Student Services Centre (SSC) on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where fees (or portion of fees) are paid by other sources
If you have funding from other sources e.g. Research Council, employer, foreign Embassy/Government etc, you must provide the University with a copy of your official letter of sponsorship. You should carefully check your sponsor details when you enrol. If any details are incorrect, you should complete the fees office sponsorship notification form SP1. The SP1 form should be returned by 1st October 2013.
Fees paid by Research Councils, SLC and the NHS are paid in accordance with government guidelines. All other sponsors will receive an invoice. If you are a sponsored student, you should log into www.webpayments.soton.ac.uk on a regular basis to track payments and view charges assigned to sponsors.
