Paying your fees

You don't have to pay up front

Most full-time undergraduate students in England don't have to pay a penny of their tuition fees until they graduate and start work. The fees are covered in full by a tuition fee loan, or by the NHS on some courses.

You don't even have to worry about getting the money to your university: once your loan has been confirmed and you have registered your attendance, the money will go straight to the university.

The Student Calculator will ask you some questions to work out whether you qualify for the tuition fee loan. If you qualify, your fees won't be included in your final budget, because you don't have to worry about them until you graduate.

What if I don't qualify for the tuition fee loan?

If you don't qualify for the tuition fee loan, you'll have to find other ways to cover your fees, such as work or sponsorship. Studying part-time may make it easier.
