Postgraduate and Career Development loans

If all or part of your tuition fees will be covered by a Postgraduate loan from Student Finance or a Career Development Loan, you will need to email a copy of your Postgraduate Loan Summary to income@city.ac.uk. We will accept your loan payments on the loan disbursement dates. If your loan is less than your tuition fees, you will need to pay the remaining fees in line with the dates of our instalment scheme.

The following are examples of how your payments would be processed in different situations with these loans.
