Tuition fee loan

The support available is a loan to help you pay all or some of your tuition fees up to a maximum of £5,500 to cover your entire course. There is no help towards your living costs.

As a part-time student you must take no longer than twice the length of the full-time equivalent course to complete your studies to qualify for support. For further details about course eligibility please refer to our Postgraduate funding guide.

If you choose to take out a loan to pay all or some of the fees, you will do so on the same terms as a student loan for living costs.

If you withdraw from your course, you may not be eligible for a loan to help with the cost of your fees. However, your university may still charge you fees for the time you have been on the course.

Disabled Students' Allowance

Extra help is available to you if you incur extra costs while you study because of a disability or learning difficulty. Further information on the type of funding available and eligibility criteria is available.

If you are applying for DSA for the first time or if your disability has changed significantly since you last applied, we will want you to have a needs assessment carried out. More information on how to apply and a list of assessment centres can be found here
