The full-time higher education tuition fee of £6,000 will apply for students enrolling on validated programmes which are designated for full-time student support.
The part-time higher education tuition fee of £3,000 will apply for students enrolling on validated programmes which are designated for part-time student support.
Students can apply for a tuition fee loan to meet these costs.
Tuition fees are payable at the start of the academic year for all students. Everyone will be charged the fee, but it does not need to be paid up front by you, as it can normally be paid by the Student Loans Company in the form of a tuition fee loan.
Student Maintenance Loans for living costs are still available, as previously. The total debt to the Student Loans Company could therefore be a combination of tuition fee loan and maintenance loan, to be repaid when you have graduated.
The amount you can borrow depends on your household income, your course and where you live and study. Help is also available from Student Finance England if you have children or an adult who depends on you financially. If you have real financial difficulties there may be other sources of help such as the College’s Higher Education Access to Learning Fund.
