Most full-time and part-time students applying for a university course for September 2022 will not have to pay their tuition fees in advance. If you are eligible your fees are automatically paid by the Student Loans Company and then transferred onto a student loan account in your name.
Additional financial support may be available for some full-time courses, subject to specific conditions.
Student Finance England have produced a step-by-step guide to help you through your student finance journey. Please click here for details.
Students who progress directly from a Level 3 full-time course at Bury College onto a course at the University Centre will benefit from a £500 bursary, paid each academic year of your course.
In order for you to receive the £500 bursary you must meet the following criteria:
You will be asked to pay back 9% of your income over the threshold of £27,295 a year. The Student Loans Company offers affordable repayment plans. For example, if you finish your course and are earning £2,400 per month, then your income each month is £126 over the threshold. In this case, you would pay back £11 each month.
