  • For Access Courses, if you are aged 19 or over, you can cover the cost of tuition fees with an Advanced Learner Loan.  Loan eligibility doesn’t depend on your income and there are no credit checks. If you complete an Access to HE Diploma and then go on to complete a degree your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off.

    All undergraduate students are required to pay an annual tuition fee, however if you are a UK undergraduate you are eligible for a student tuition fee loan to cover the cost of fees. The Government pays the tuition fee directly to UCS so no money passes through your bank account.

    You do not have to pay back the loan and interest until you’re earning. If you leave your course early you would need to repay a percentage of the tuition fee loan for that year.

    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. read more here

  • If you start a full-time or part-time master’s course after 1 August 2023 you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan. You’ll be able to borrow up to £12,167 to pay your fees and help with living costs. Find out more here 

  • We offer financial support to students from underrepresented groups. This helps students access higher education and continue studying until their course is completed. The support includes:

    • An annual bursary of £750 for the duration of the course if the student’s household income is below £25,000
    • An annual bursary of up to £750 per year for students from low-income backgrounds, from postcode areas where young people are less likely to go to university and from ethnic minority backgrounds where household income is below £32,960.
    • A bursary of up to £500 to support students with disability to access a diagnostic assessment for learning differences.
    • Hardship payments to support students with travel, accommodation or subsistence.
    • A residential bursary to support Care Experienced students who have been in local authority care at any time since the age of 14 years to have access to accommodation all year round.

    Depending on the financial information disclosed in your Student Loan application, UCS may make an automatic bursary award based on specific criteria as set out in our Access and Participation Plan.  If this is not the case you may still be able to apply for financial support to the UCS HE Hardship fund by completing a Bursary Application form when you enrol.
