Studying at university is a big financial investment. You’ll need to cover the costs of tuition fees and, if you’re living away from home, cover the costs of living.

You can take out tuition fee and maintenance loans to cover these costs and you will only start repaying your loan once your income reaches a certain level.

You can apply for these loans via www.studentfinancedirect.co.uk

How Are Tuition Fees paid?

Higher Education fees are paid in three instalments over the academic year.

The first is payable at enrolment, followed by payments at the beginning of the Spring term and beginning of the Summer term.

If you have tuition fee loan these payments will be paid automatically to us, so you don’t have to remember these dates.

 Up-to-date information on fees and government funding can be found on www.brighton.ac.uk/money.

How to apply for a Student Loan

Student loans are available to pay for your university education through the Government.

There are two loans: one for your tuition fees and another for living coasts known as an Maintenance loan.

If you decide to take out a loan, these do not have to be re-paid until you start earning £21,000 a year.

For more information about these loans and how the Government can help you fund your education, please visit The Student Loans Company - www.slc.co.uk.


Depending on your circumstances and eligibility, we offer bursaries that you won’t have to repay.

For some people, university is the biggest financial commitment they’ll ever make.

That’s why we want to try and help you.
