FEES AND FINANCE

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.

*Fees of £9,250 are subject to UA92 being awarded a provisional TEF. 

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 students wanting to study at UA92 for September 2022 entry is £14,466*. 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.

INDUSTRY CONNECTIONS

Students will take part in regular Insight Days to Salford City FC, where they will interact with coaching and backroom teams, and learn from industry experts. Practical understanding across the different module areas will be brought to life by guest speakers and experts in areas such as sports psychology and biomechanics.  

Networking sessions and events will take place with sports industry contacts and placements at organisations such as Greater Sport and Trafford Leisure.  Through our partner contacts, students will learn a deep understanding of the sports industry, and the importance of health and well-being across the sector.

Further partner connections are built through the Character and Personal Development modules, as students work on projects set by a range of partners and undertake placements which build on their subject discipline and give an insight into working across subject and industry boundaries.
