Student loans

  • You may be able to get a student loan to cover the full cost of your tuition fees.
  • Student loans for eligible students mean that you have no upfront fees to pay.
  • You only start to repay the loan after graduation or after 4.5 years from when you started your course, and only when you are earning over £21,000 a year. Repayments stop the moment your earnings fall below £21,000.
  • The loan is effectively a ‘pay as you earn’ graduate tax.
  • Repayments depend on the size of your pay packet, not the size of your loan.
  • Any outstanding loan will be written off after 30 years.
