Maintenance Loans

You can apply for a maintenance loan to help with living costs. These loans are paid into your bank account at the start of each term and are not repayable. The exact amount you can borrow depends on your household income, where you live and what assistance you receive through maintenance grants.

For further information on these loans and additional payments you may be entitled to, please visit the Government website here.

Students will be liable to pay back a percentage of the tuition fee loan paid to our partnership from the first day of term. This will be the case regardless of any withdrawals or failure of the course.
