What do I need to pay for? 


If you decide to study away from home, your three biggest outgoings will be tuition fees, accommodation and living costs.

How much are tuition fees? 


The cost for UK undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2022 entry is £9,250 per academic year.

Most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this, paid directly to the institution.

How do I apply for a student loan? 


You can apply online from Student Finance England, www.gov.uk/student-finance

Applying is not dependent on an offer, so you can get a headstart on the process.

When do I pay this back? 


Not straight away. You won’t actually start paying the loan back until you’re working and earning over £26,575 - how much you pay depends on your salary. 

Is there a loan for accommodation and living costs? 


Yes – eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan, again through Student Finance England, up to £8,700 a year to help with the costs of living. Repayment of this works in the same way as your tuition fees – they actually combine together into one sum. 

I’m an international student, how much are my fees? 


The cost for International undergraduate students at UA92 for September 2021 entry is £14,466 per academic year. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent upfront before your course begins. 

*Fees are subject to annual change. 

Can I get advice or support during my time at UA92? 


Absolutely, we will have a Support Team on campus to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure you manage your money whilst studying with us. In addition, and as part of our Character and Personal Development curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life.
