Student Loans Company Funding - Undergraduate

UK students applying for our full-time and part-time Undergraduate courses can apply for Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans to help cover the cost of tuition fees and living costs whilst studying (subject to eligibility). Tuition Fee Loans are also available for EU students.

Student loan application options

If you are applying for a programme beginning before September 2017:

You can apply for a tuition fee loan up to a maximum of £6,000 (full-time) or £4,500 (part-time) per academic year. For students from Northern Ireland, the maximum tuition fee loan available is £3,805 per academic year.

If you are applying for a programme beginning in September 2017 or onwards:

You can apply for a tuition fee loan up to a maximum of £6,165 (full-time) or £4,625 (part-time) per academic year. For students from Northern Ireland, the maximum tuition fee loan available is £3,805 per academic year.

Students should note that from September 2017, BPP University's fee are above the maximum tuition loan available of £6,165 per year and students would therefore need to self-fund the difference.

Please note - if at any point during your studies you change modes of study or the speed at which you complete your studies, we will be required to notify the Student Loans Company as this may have funding implications.

Maintenance Loan

Full-time students can apply for a maintenance loan to help cover living costs. The amount granted per student will depend on; where you live during your studies, e.g. at home, in London or an alternative city.

You could get an increased loan if you disclose your annual income. Should you be granted this loan, you would not have to pay this back until you have graduated and are earning over £21,000 per annum.

Maintenance Loans are paid directly to students after they have registered onto their course. They are paid in three instalments throughout the year.

Additional student funding options

There are many loan providers available who may be able to offer you financial support for your studies including; PCDL (Professional Career Development Loan). For your financial protection, we would strongly recommend that you choose loan provider that is registered with the Financial Conduct Agency (FCA).

At BPP University, we have entered into an arrangement with an external loan provider “Future Finance” to support students seeking loans of between £2,500 and £40,000.

Please note that we act as a credit broker to Future Finance and are not responsible for providing the loan or assessing your eligibility for a loan.

Further details of eligibility requirements, interest rates and other key terms of the loan are available by visiting the: Future Finance website.

Repayment

You don’t have to replay your loans until you have finished or left your course and are in work and earning over £21,000 a year. The amount you repay is calculated at a rate of 9% of your income over £21,000.

Use the student finance calculator to estimate the funding you could receive.

We would advise applying for funding support as soon as possible to ensure your application is processed ready for the start of your course.
