More Details About the Course

Course Fee: £6000.

Tution Fee loan and Maintenance Loan for living cost is available for this course. 

What’s a Tuition Fee loan?

A Tuition Fee Loan helps you to pay for your course. New full-time students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £9,000 to cover the cost of tuition fees. The amount you can get doesn’t depend on your household income.

The maximum Tuition Fee Loan available to new students starting courses with private universities and colleges is £6,000. However, you’ll be able to apply for the same Maintenance Loan as other full-time students.

What’s a Maintenance Loan?

A Maintenance Loan helps towards your living costs, such as food, rent and books.

The amount you can borrow depends on your household income, your course and where you live and study.

For academic session 2018-19

  • You can get up to £7324 a year if you live with your parents.
  • You can get up to £8,700 a year if you live away from home and study outside London.
  • You can get up to £11,354 a year if you live away from home and study in London.
  • You can get up to £9,963 a year if you study overseas as part of your course.

If you’re 60 or over on the first day of the first academic year of your course you can apply for up to £3,680.


Repayments are based on your future income, not what you borrow. You won’t repay your loan until you’ve left university and your income is over £25,000 a year.

If you’re employed, repayments will be deducted from your income (the same as it is with tax and national insurance contributions).

You’ll repay 9% of your income over £25,000 a year. So, if you earn £25,000 a year this means you’ll repay 9% of £4,000 – or £30 a month. If you’re self-employed, separate arrangements are in place with HMRC to make your repayments.

If you stop working or your income drops below £25,000 your repayments will stop and only start again when your income is over £25,000 a year. After 30 years, any outstanding balance will be written off, unless you have defaulted on your loan.
