Fees & Finances

Your finances

When coming to University, you will have two main costs. These will be Tuition Fees and Living Costs.

Tuition Fees

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 £26,575 a year.

Living Costs

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.

Help and Support

Whatever your circumstances, there is help available to all students to deal with the costs of university. You will recieve help from the government and from the University.

Check out our Student Finance pages for more information or contact the Money Support Unit for advice and support.
