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 2020 entry is £10,800 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,

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 £25,000 - 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? 


£20,655 per year. You will be expected to pay a minimum of 50 percent upfront before your course begins. 

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 Target Talent Curriculum, you’ll learn about financial planning to manage your finances in study and throughout your working life.


All UA92 students will get to meet and learn from multi-global organisations such as Microsoft and KPMG.  In addition, leading connectivity provider, TalkTalk are key partners in our Business Studies degree.  This fast-paced, innovative organisation provides our students with the opportunity to learn more about their business operations at informative Insight Days and they also provide regular classroom-based content with guest lectures and masterclasses.

Students will also have guest lectures from Salford City FC to understand the role of business practice in sports organisations and input and engagement with GG Hospitality and retail giants The Trafford Centre will help develop understanding of leisure business models. 

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.
