Tuition Fee Loans
New part-time UK and EU students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan provided they are studying at least 25 per cent of the equivalent full-time course in the relevant academic year:
- A loan of up to £6,750 per year will be available to cover tuition fees.
- You will only start paying the loan back once you are earning at least £21,000.
For more information about applying for Tuition Fee Loans, please visit the gov.uk site.
Part-time students are not eligible for living cost loans and grants.
Additional sources of funding
Further support is available from the government for eligible disabled students in the form of the DSA (Disabled Students' Allowance) and the Disabled Living Allowance.

Part-time students starting their course in 2015/16 will start to repay their loan in April 2018 provided that they are earning at least £21,000.
