UK students are entitled to certain financial support from the government in the form of loans. There are two repayable loans available to you when you go to university for the first time - a Tuition Fee Loan and a Maintenance Loan. If you are applying for an NHS course, please visit our NHS finance information page.

If you are an international student, you will be eligible for student finance if you have citizens’ rights (or if you are an Irish citizen covered by the Common Travel Area arrangement).Please visit the website for full details about the changes for funding for citizens of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
