If you’re a new part-time student you may be able to 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 a graduate earning over £25,725.


Key Facts

  • Repayments of the tuition fee loan will start 3 years after the start of study when the income is over £25,725.
  • The money is paid directly to the university on your behalf, it is a loan so you are expected to pay it back.

  • The tuition fee loan is not available for postgraduate students.
  • After 30 years any remaining debt is written off.



You must be:

  • studying at an undergraduate level for the first time (you haven’t been to university before and don’t already have an undergraduate or equivalent level qualification)*
  • doing a minimum of 25% of a full-time course or modules worth 30 credits a year
  • classified as a Home or EU student**

*Some part-time degrees are eligible for funding as a second degree. Please contact for further information.
