Tuition Fees

A Smart and Affordable Investment

Did you know that graduates earn on average £12,000 per year more than non-graduates over their working lives?

All UK universities charge tuition fees, though most UK and EU students are eligible for a tuition fee loan from the UK government so they are able to ‘study now and pay later’.  If you are eligible for a tuition fee loan you won’t have to pay any fees up front and you won’t start paying the fees back until you’re earning a reasonable income - currently set at over £21,000.

  • No up-front fees
  • Students don’t pay - graduates pay
  • You only pay back your loan once you start work and earn more than £21,000 per year
  • Outstanding debt written off when you retire

You can find further details of the student loan system at the gov.uk website.
