Everything you need to know about funding your studies
Getting your finances in order might not be the most exciting part of getting ready for university, but it needs doing.
When it comes to fees, loans, bursaries and grants, it’s important to know what you qualify for and how to apply for it. Our short video below explains everything you need to know about funding your studies:
Already applied for student finance?
That’s fine - if you have previously applied for a student loan against a course at another institution, you need to change your student finance application to Leeds Beckett University before you arrive and enrol on your course. You may otherwise face delays in the payment of maintenance and tuition fee loans from the Student Loans Company.
What I am entitled to?
It’s different for everyone. Most people are able to borrow money to pay for their fees and get help with their living costs. On top of that, extra funding can be available, such as Disabled Students’ Allowance and Childcare Grants.
There are two types of student loans available from Student Finance England.
The first one is the Tuition Fee Loan. It is not income assessed and it is paid directly to us to cover your tuition fees, which are £9,250 per annum.
The second one is the Maintenance Loan. It is income assessed and paid directly into your bank each academic term. It can be up to £9,203, if you will be living away from home, or £7,747, if you will be living at home.
