How will I pay the fees? 

Student tuition fees may seem daunting, but remember you will not have to pay your fees up front. If you live in England, you can get a loan to cover your tuition fees. You will only start repaying this once you are earning over £21,000 per year. You can also take out a loan to cover your living costs.

If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you will receive financial support from the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government or the Northern Ireland Executive. If you live in the EU and meet certain eligibility criteria, you can get a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees.

If you are funding your own studies or if you are an international student, you will need to pay your fees in advance. Find out how and when to pay your fees.
