Loans available from the government
You’ll be able to take out a tuition fee loan. You won't start repaying your student loans for tuition fees and living costs until you've finished studying and you're earning over £21,000 a year.
You'll also be able to get a loan for your living costs (food, accommodation and travel). The maximum you'll get is:
- £5,500 if you live away from home
- £4,375 if you live with your parents or guardians.
