FEES AND FINANCE

FROM TUITION FEES TO LOANS AND SUPPORT, HERE’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW.

Higher education is a big investment, but the benefits of your degree-level study will pay dividends throughout your career. There’s many myths surrounding the fees and finance of higher education so here’s all the facts you need.

WHAT DO I NEED TO PAY FOR?

If you decide to study away from home, you will pay for your tuition fees, which can be supported by a student loan, and you’ll have outgoings for accommodation and living costs, should you choose to move away from home to study.

HOW MUCH ARE TUITION FEES? (UK STUDENTS)

The below sets out the annual tuition fees for study at UA92 for UK students studying in 2023/24.*

Course Annual Tuition Fee
Full Time Degree (three years) £9,250 
Accelerated Degree (two years) £11,100
Part-Time Degree (four years) / 90 Credits per year £6,395

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

*UA92 will review tuition fees each year. For UK students, if Parliament permits an increase in tuition fees, UA92 along with other HEIs in England may increase fees for each subsequent year of study in line with any such changes.

HOW MUCH ARE TUITION FEES? (INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS)

International students will need to pay a minimum of 50% before the course begins. *

Course Annual Tuition Fee (From Sept 24)
Full Time Degree (three years) £16,101
Accelerated Degree (two years) £24,151
All CERT HE (Full-time) £16,101
International Foundation Year £15,050
Integrated First Year £17,800
Integrated First Year (Accelerated) £25,675

*UA92 fees for international students increase by 3% for new students only.
For international students, UA92 will fix the tuition fee for the duration of your course when studied continuously.

HOW DO I APPLY FOR A STUDENT LOAN?

To help cover the costs of your tuition fees, you can apply for a student loan from Student Finance England: www.gov.uk/student-finance. You do not need to wait for our offer to apply for Student Finance, so you can get a head start.

To find UA92 courses on the Student Finance Portal, please follow the instructions below:
1. Select Lancaster University (Lancaster University will be awarding our degrees).
2. Search for UA92 in the course area.
3. Select your course (All UA92 courses will have ‘UA92’ at the start).

Make sure to select the right level and course length when picking your course.

International students are not eligible to apply for a loan through Student Finance England.

WHEN DO I PAY MY STUDENT LOAN BACK?

You won’t pay your student loan back straight away. If you start your course on or after 1 August 2023, you will pay 9% once you are earning over £25,000 per year.

Only once you start earning over £25,000 per year will you begin paying the loan back, and even then, it’s only 9% of anything earned over this threshold.

IS THERE A LOAN FOR ACCOMMODATION/LIVING COSTS?

Eligible UK students can apply for a Maintenance Loan which is provided by Student Finance England. The loan, of up to £9,706 a year helps with the cost of living and is combined with your student loan into one sum and repaid in the same way.

IS ADVICE AND SUPPORT AVAILABLE TO ME DURING MY TIME AT UA92?

Our team on campus are more than happy to help you with budgeting and financial advice to ensure that you can manage your money well whilst studying with us.

As part of your Character and Personal Development, you will also learn about financial planning to manage your finances both through study and your working life.

WHAT OTHER SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE AT UA92?

UA92 has several grants that you might be eligible for. For further details, please check out our fees and financial support page here. We also have a student hardship fund available.

WHAT IS THE UCAS APPLICATION FEE?

Applying for 2025 entry? Before you can send your application to UCAS, you will need to pay them a fee of £28.50 for up to five choices.

You may be exempt from this fee if you are eligible for free school meals. Find out more here.
