Student loans and financial support

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to study at Birkbeck. We want you to feel confident about applying for and enrolling on a first degree or certificate, knowing whether you can pay your fees by taking a government loan.

Our promise to you: if you're eligible for a loan, you will pay nothing upfront.

Government loans for certificate and undergraduate students

Birkbeck’s generous cash bursaries and fee reductions

  • National Scholarship Programme fee reductions: Birkbeck remains committed to maintaining its generous fee reduction packages and will cover the funding gap left by cuts in government contributions to the National Scholarship Programme (NSP) from autumn 2014. The NSP provides fee reductions for new students on low incomes, and the College will honour its commitment to eligible Birkbeck students starting in autumn 2014 who will still be entitled to reductions of up to £3000 on their course fees.
  • Cash bursaries: Birkbeck’s non-repayable cash bursaries are paid directly to you to support the other costs of study such as books, childcare and travel. Eligible students on low incomes are entitled to generous cash bursaries of up to £1000 per year.
