Fees and Funding

Partial Fee Waiver

All applicants who pass an Admissions Workshop (interview and English language test if needed) will be offered a partial fee waiver. Our fee waiver policy means that the cost of our degrees compares really well to other universities, and because you’ll graduate career-ready it's a great investment in your future.

Our tuition fee includes registration, tuition and examination fees.

The government reviews the programmes eligible for student loans for new students on an annual basis, so visit our website for up-to-date information on which of our programmes are eligible for loans. These loans are for UK or EU students living in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland to help cover the costs of tuition fees.

Student loans

For undergraduate entry in 2018-19; students must be studying a designated course to be eligible for SLC funding. Courses at alternative providers, including LCIBS, are designated each year by the Department for Education. We have designation for our validated undergraduate courses for the 2018-19 academic year.

Tuition fee loans

These are loans from the student finance companies for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the money will be sent directly to us to pay your tuition fees. If you're a full-time student, you can borrow up to £6,000 to pay for your tuition fees at an alternative provider such as LCIBS.

As we are committed to ensuring that talented students with potential have the opportunity to succeed with one of our degrees, we offer all applicants the opportunity to receive a partial fee waiver upon the successful completion of our Admissions Workshop. EU nationals must have resided in the UK and Islands for the five years prior to the start of their course should they wish to apply for tuition loans.

Maintenance fee loans

If you’re planning to study full-time, you may also apply to get a Maintenance Loan to help with your living costs. You can apply for this when you apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. The amount you get depends on your household income and you’ll get money at the start of each term. EU nationals must have resided in the UK and Islands for the five years prior to the start of their course should they wish to apply for maintenance loans.

Paying back what you've borrowed

You won’t start paying your Tuition Fee Loan or Maintenance Loan back until the April after your degree finishes, and only if you earn above £25,000 a year. If you’re employed, your repayments will be calculated by your employer and taken directly from your salary. Then, at the end of the tax year, they’ll be sent to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
