You may be eligible to apply to the Student Loans Company (SLC) for funding. Repayments to the SLC only begin once you have left University and are earning more than a certain level of income. If you choose not to apply or are ineligible for a full tuition fee loan, then you must pay the balance of tuition fees or set up an instalment plan at registration.
Full-Time NI/EU/GB Undergraduate and PGCE students may be eligible to defer payment of their tuition fees by applying for a tuition fee loan to the Student Loans Company.
Part-Time Undergraduate Students may be eligible for a Fees Grant, a Course Grant or a Tuition Fee Loan.
Postgraduate students in Northern Ireland may be eligible to apply for a Postgraduate Tuition Fee loan. Eligible GB postgraduate taught students may apply for a Postgraduate Loan to help with course fees and living costs.
