When coming to University, you will have two main costs. These will be Tuition Fees and Living Costs.
The important thing to remember about the tuition fees is that UK/EU students do not have to pay the tuition fee up front - you study first and pay back when you're earning. You don't have to pay any tuition fees up front or while you are studying (although you can if you want to). The payment is deferred until after you graduate through a tuition fee loan. You will start to repay the loan as soon as you start earning over £21,000 a year.
Bursaries and Scholarships
Bangor University also provides Bursaries and Scholarships to offer extra help for new and returning students.
To find out more, visit our Student Finance webpages.
All students, whether or not they are living at home, will have costs to meet. The main costs are accommodation, rent, bills, food, clothing, books, equipment, travel and socialising.
Don't worry there's help available to all students.
Help and Support
Whatever your circumstances, there is help available to all students to deal with the costs of university. You will receive help from the government and from the University.
Depending on household income, students may be eligible to receive a Grant or Bursary by the government to help with the cost of studying at university.
Bangor Scholarships and Bursaries
Universities offer their own bursaries and scholarship schemes. Some are exam based and other are based on A level results. You don't have to pay this money back and you are free to spend it as you wish. Here at Bangor, we offer over £3.7M in Scholarships and Bursaries. Find out more here.
