Mechanics of the form

Mechanics of the form

  • All financial support is initially applied for online

  • The application will be live from November 2009

  • You will need to provide either your passport number (which is input into your form) or an original copy of your birth certificate

  • Any further forms that you may require will be sent to you after you have submitted your initial application, in many cases this is the only form that you will need to complete


Tuition fees

Tuition fees

  • Up to £3290 per year (2010 fees, this figure will rise each year with the rate of inflation)

  • Fees may vary between courses and universities

  • You can study now, pay later

  • Majority of fees paid either by:

  • Tuition fee loan

  • Means-tested grant.


Tuition fee loan

  • Available to all applicants

  • Non means-tested

  • £3290 available – amount granted will be linked to your course cost

  • Paid directly to the university by Student Finance England

  • Repaid by the student after graduation


Means tested grant

Means-tested grant

  • Up to £2906 per year from Student Finance England

  • Grant = non-repayable!

  • Means-tested (based on household income)

  • Less than £25,000 per year = full grant of £2906

  • Between £25,000-£50,020 per year = variable grant < £2906

  • More than £50,020 per year = no grant entitlement

  • Paid in three instalments (at the start of each term)

  • Can spend on living costs/tuition fees


Bursaries

Bursaries

  • A bursary is non-repayable money that you qualify for

  • Qualification criteria and amounts differ from university to university, but are often based on the amount of means-tested grant being received, your household income, or your home postcode

  • Money can be spent on living costs/tuition fees


Scholarships

Scholarships

  • A scholarship is non-repayable money that is awarded for achievement (usually academic)

  • Qualification criteria and amounts will differ from university to university but can often be based on UCAS points, grades achieved or a specific skill, for example a musical or sporting achievement

  • Information about an individual university’s criteria and awards can be found on their website and in their prospectus

  • Money can be spent on living costs/tuition fees

Student maintenance loan

Student maintenance loan

  • To cover living and study costs

  • Household income*

  • Where you live and what you study

  • The year of the course that you are on.

  • Paid in three instalments direct to the student

  • * Household income is the gross income (before deductions of tax and NI contributions) of the parent(s) that you live with (including that of any partner or step parent who also lives with you). It may also include any income that you or a sibling earns on which they pay tax (a minimum salary of £6035 a year).
