Student Funding


For students to be eligible for SLC funding, they must be studying on a course designated each year by Department for Education. All courses listed in our website have been designated for SLC funding in the 2021-22 academic year.

UK and EU** students may be entitled to a student loan from the Student Loans Company to cover the cost of their tuition fees. UK and EU** students may also be eligible for a student loan or grant to cover their maintenance cost whilst studying. 

Funding from the Student Loans Company is dependent upon meeting the eligibility criteria for public funding. Please see the details for eligibility at

Repaying Student Loan

Full-time students begin paying back their student loan once they finish their course and earn more than £27,288 per year*. However, if your income falls below £27,288* a year, your repayments stop.

Your employer will automatically take repayments from your salary if your income, before tax, is over the UK threshold. The current thresholds for repayment are £27,288 a year, £2,274 a month or £524 a week for Plan 2. You pay 9% of your income over the threshold. Your annual income is £28,800 and you are paid a regular monthly wage. This means that each month your income is £2,400 (£28,800 divided by 12). This is over the Plan 2 monthly threshold of £2,274. Your income is £126 over the threshold (£2,400 minus £2,274). You will pay back £11 (9% of £126) each month..

If you're self-employed you'll pay through self-assessment.
