Student Loans

Undergraduate Tuition Fee Loans

Eligible UK or EU undergraduate students no longer need to pay tuition fees upfront as they will be eligible for a Tuition Fees Loan. This loan covers the cost of their course and will be paid directly to the College by the Student Loan Company. Martin Lewis has some useful advice about preparing for student life on his Money Saving Expert website.

If you are an EU student from outside the UK, please refer to the guidance on the DirectGov website.
