Tuition fee loans (UK Only)
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 £7,200 to pay for your tuition fees at an alternative provider such as LCIBS.
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 (UK Only)
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).
Office for Students (OfS) Registration
For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS). The OfS is the new independent regulator for higher education in England and all higher education providers need to register with the OfS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2019-20 academic year. The OfS started publishing providers on its Register in July 2018. We have made an application to register and expect a decision shortly. No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OfS. Visit www.officeforstudents.org.uk for more information.
There are some additional costs that you may incur during the course of your study. Course required reading is available through the college’s library and e-books provision. You may wish to supplement these resources with self-selected book purchases. The amount will vary depending on your choice of assignment and the availability of books in the library. We recommend you budget between £200 to £300 a year.
In addition, the college also offers students the opportunity to participate in field trips. The cost of these field trips vary. Advance notice of any field trips, including costs, will be given to all students.
