POSTGRADUATE  Research students should note in addition to the above , in some cases very specialist software or other facilities needed for their individual research projects may not be already in place, and the provision and funding of this should be discussed with your proposed supervisory team before you enrol.

 

Will there be funding for part time students?

If you’re a new part-time student you can now apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the government to cover the cost of tuition. As with full-time students you only start to repay this as after 3 years and when earning over £21,000. Find out more here.

 

How and when will I repay my loan?

You will to start making repayments of your loan in the April after you graduate from your course. For example, if you begin a three year course in 2015/16, you will graduate in July 2018 and will start making repayments in April 2019 provided you are earning over £21,000.

However, if you finish or leave your course earlier, the Students Loans Company will not be able to take repayments from your wages until April 2016. Repayment will only start on or after the above dates depending on your earnings.

Repayment is always linked to earnings not how much you have borrowed. Repayment will only start when your annual income is £21,000 or more. The amount you will repay will be 9% of your income over £21,000 per year.

 

How and when do I pay my tuition fees?

 

Will loan repayments affect my ability toget a mortgage?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders has advised that a student loan is ‘very unlikely’ to have a material impact on an individual’s ability to get a mortgage. The amount of mortgage available may depend on net income.

 

My fees are being paid by my employer or other organisation; when do I notify the fees office?

You must provide a sponsor letter from your employer in advance of online enrolment in order to become registered with the University. If your sponsor is only paying part of your fees you must pay the balance in full or sign up to an instalment plan at enrolment.

 

Do I qualify as a Welsh domicile?

Persons who have settled status in the UK and have been resident in the UK for three years before the first day of the first academic year of the course and are ordinarily resident in Wales on the first academic year of the course will be regarded as domiciled in Wales for the purposes of support from Student Finance Wales. 

UK students who move to Wales for the purpose of studying are to be regarded as ordinarily resident in the place (in the UK) from which they moved, these students would not be entitled to support from Student Finance Wales.

 

I am having problems getting my tuition fee loan approved by Student Finance – is there anyone that can help me?

You can visit the Student Funding and Money Advice if you have any queries about fees and funding where staff can help you look at your eligibility and help you communicate with Student Finance.

 

Student Finance has told me I need to get my attendance confirmed by the University – who do I need to contact?

There are two kinds of ‘confirmation of attendance’: one is required at the start of the year, confirmation of registration, which upon receipt allows Student Finance to release payment of maintenance loans and grants into your specified bank account.
If it is for this reason that you need your registration re-confirming you can contact slc_queries@glyndwr.ac.uk Please provide your Student Support Number, full name and DOB.

The other kind ‘confirmation of attendance’ is where the University has to confirm you are in attendance each term, upon receipt of this Student Finance will release the relevant instalment of your tuition fee to the university.
