Tuition fees and loans

Three-year and two-year Undergraduate honours Degree courses and Foundation Year courses (Level 0 prior to continuing on to a linked three-year Undergraduate honours Degree course) are £9,250 per year for tuition fees in 2019–20.

Two-year Foundation Degree courses, (Supporting Children and Families in Social Contexts ; Supporting Early Years; Supporting Learning and Additional Needs) ​​are £5,000 per year for tuition fees in 2019-20. 

Depending on government policy, tuition fees may rise with inflation in future years. Part-time tuition fees would be pro-rated accordingly to the number of credits you are studying.

You will not have to pay these fee​s upfront. E​ligible UK and EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of their tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through small monthly repayments. Full-time students will not start repaying their loan until the April after you leave university once you're earning over £25,716. This earning threshold may be adjusted annually in line with average earnings by the government.

UK students on full-time courses can apply for a package ​of maintenance funding from the government to help with general living costs and additional funding if you have children and/or a disability. Part-time students from England and Wales starting a course in 2018/19 onwards can apply for the new ‘part time maintenance loan’.
