Going to university is an investment, particularly in terms of money. When it comes to cold hard cash you need to make sure you’re doing things right, so we’ve provided some financial information to help you get to grips with it all.
Tuition fees and loans (UK/ EU students)
Tuition fees for most of our undergraduate courses starting in 2014/15 are £9,000. Most students can take out a loan to cover this, which will be paid directly to our University.
Apply for your loan online from the Student Finance section of the Gov.uk website. You don't need to wait to receive an offer of a place before you do this.You’ll pay your loan back in monthly instalments once you’ve finished your course and are earning over £21,000 a year. How much you pay back depends on how much you’re earning.
Tuition fees (International Students)
For international students, fees for most of our undergraduate courses starting in 2014/15 are £9,500. You’re expected to pay a minimum of 50% of your tuition fees before you begin your course, and if you pay the full amount before your course start date, you may also be eligible to receive a 10% early payment discount.
Take a look at our international pages for more advice about tuition fees and finance.
Maintenance loans and grants
Full-time UK students can apply to Student Finance for additional money to help pay for living costs such as accommodation and food.
You make your application at the same time you apply for your tuition fee loan, and how much you get depends on your parents’ income. The money will be paid directly to you, and if you qualify for a grant you won’t have to pay it back like you would a loan.
If you have dependants or a disability, you can also apply for extra financial support.
We offer a High Achievers Scholarship to students who get A level grades ABB or equivalent in recognition of your hard work. Subject to eligibility criteria, you’ll receive a discount on your first year tuition fees. We also offer sports scholarships.
Extra financial help
Our Money Support Team can provide help to students in financial hardship, including through the Access to Learning Fund. We can offer advice on short-term emergency loans, and may award you a grant from the fund that you won’t have to pay back.
US Direct Loans
Our Money Support Team administers US Direct Loans including Veteran Affairs Funding on behalf of the US Government.
