Students who started their course between 1 September 2012 and 1 August 2018

You could get a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £9,250 if you’re studying at an eligible university or college in the UK.

There are no restrictions on how much private universities and colleges in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, or Approved registered providers in England, can charge for fees.

If you’re not sure if a course qualifies for student finance, check with the university or college.

You can choose to take the Fee Grant (if applicable) only but you’ll need to pay the remaining tuition fees yourself.

Interest on your Tuition Fee Loan

You’ll be charged interest on your Tuition Fee Loan from the first day the money is paid to your university or college until the loan is repaid in full or cancelled.

You can find out what interest you’ll be charged by visiting our Repayment Quick Start Guide

How is it paid?

Both the Tuition Fee Loan and Fee Grant (if applicable) are paid directly to your university or college.

Anything else you should know?

The Tuition Fee Loan and Fee Grant (if applicable) aren’t income assessed, which means that your entitlement for these doesn’t depend on your household income.

If you withdraw from university or college after attending on the first day of term, you may be liable to pay some of your fees. If you need to discuss this further, contact your university or college.
