Study at City


Whether you're thinking of applying to City as an undergraduate or postgraduate, a student loan can be essential in helping to fund your university studies. A number of loan schemes are provided, by the UK Government and through other providers, to help finance your degree.

Undergraduate loans

The best-known source of funding for students starting an undergraduate degree in the UK is a loan from the Government-owned Student Loans Company.

All first degree UK and EU students, including part-time students, can take out a tuition fee loan through the Student Loans Company to help cover the cost of university tuition fees. The Student Loans Company also offers maintenance loans to students upon application, which can further help with funding your study at university.

Postgraduate loans

A new loan of up to £10,609 is available from the Government for applicants to postgraduate master's degrees starting after 1st August 2018. The loan is non-means tested and can be used towards tuition fees, maintenance costs or a combination of both. The Government also supports provision of professional and career development bank loans of between £300 and £10,000, for which postgraduate students can also apply.
