Funding available

Loans and other types of financial support may be available.  

Tuition Fee Loans cover your fees, so you don’t pay up front, only after you finish your course and you’re earning above a certain level of income. You can also take out a Maintenance Loan to help with your living costs.

There’s detailed information about finance for full-time students on GOV.UK. You can also use the Student Finance Calculator to estimate what loans and other support you may be entitled to.

Working part time whilst studying full time

Full-time higher education courses do not necessarily involve spending five days a week at a university or college, so you might be able to work as well as study. Check what the attendance requirements are for your chosen course but remember that to qualify for full-time funding support, your course needs to have full-time course status. Speak to the career department or Student Union at your university or college for advice on how to find part-time flexible work that will fit around your studies.
