  • Loans and Maintenance Grants

    For Access Courses, if you are aged 19 or over, you can cover the cost of tuition fees with an Advanced Learning Loan.  Loan eligability doesn’t depend on your income and there are no credit checks.   Repayments don’t begin until you finish the course and are earning at least £21,000. If you complete an Access to HE Diploma and then go on to complete a degree your Advanced Learning Loan will be written off.

    For BSc and FdSc courses a Tuition Fee Loan is available to cover the full cost of your tuition, and you only start to pay it back when you are earning over £21,000 per year. You do not have to pay for your course upfront. Loans are available here

    If you’re studying full-time and your household income is less than £42,600 a year, you may be entitled to a maintenance grant, which doesn’t have to be repaid. There is also a maintenance loan available to any full-time student to help with living costs such as rent. This does have to be repaid but not until your course has finished and you’re earning more than £21,000 a year.

    Maintenance Grant is non-repayable and available to help with living costs. It is subject to household income. 

  • Postgraduate Loans for Master's Degrees

    If you start a full-time or part-time master’s course after 1 August 2016 you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan. You’ll be able to borrow up to £10,000 to pay your fees and help with living costs. Find out more here 

  • Scholarships and Bursaries

    Sparsholt College Bursary – if your household income is under £25,000 you could receive a bursary of up to £750. Application forms are available from Student Services or by clicking to download our form here. Please fill this in so we can look at your circumstances and help wherever possible.

  • Additional costs associated with courses

    Trips and fees that are required in order to complete a course of study will be covered by the College as part of the tuition fees for full time students.  For part time students the College will reimburse students up to a maximum of £200 to help with annual student subscriptions and entry fees or other reasonable expenses but will not pay for any transport costs associated with a course of study.
