What do we spend your tuition fees on?  Our Value for Money Statement explains this in further detail:
Our Value for Money Statement

Tuition Fee loan

The majority of home and EU students (regardless of household income) can borrow up to the full tuition fee for their course from the Student Loans Company. Therefore, you won’t have to pay anything towards the cost of your tuition until completion of your studies.  This applies to full and part-time programmes.

The money will be paid directly to us on your behalf and the earliest you start repaying is when your income is over £480 a week or £2,083 a month (before tax and other deductions).

Maintenance loan

You can also apply for a maintenance loan to help towards the cost of living, and this is paid directly to you. For full details please go to

Postgraduate Loan (MA/MSc)
