Following changes to funding from 1 August 2017, there are no upfront fees to pay for degree courses in Adult Nursing, Child Nursing and Mental Health Nursing, Midwifery and Social work.

Fee information is available on individual course pages. Please see your course page to find out the latest fee information.

Student loans

A student loan is available to cover the University tuition costs which you will only repay once you begin employment earning over £25,000. For more information, you can visit the University's Funding site.

Here are a few facts to remember, based on the current fees:

  • If you earn £27,000, repayment is £15 a month, less than £4 a week
  • If you aren't working you won't pay. If you take time out to have a family, you won't pay
  • If it isn't repaid within 30 years, the outstanding amount is written off.

Funding support

We offer non-repayable support to UK and EU students to help with the costs of being at University, which is linked to your annual household income.

You will be able to choose how you receive this support – either as a cash bursary, a discount on your fees or University accommodation.

We have a number of schoalrships you can explore to help with the costs of coming to University, which the University provides:

Planning your finances

Once you have been accepted, it's worth thinking about your finances and planning a budget, so you can enjoy both your course and student life. Your student loan is paid into your bank account in three installments at the start of each term, and it needs to last the whole term, so spend it carefully. Have a look at this budget planner to get an idea of where to start.
