If you receive a tuition fee loan
The Student Loans Company will pay the fees direct to the University in three instalments:
- 25% in term one
- 25% in term two
- 50% in term three
It’s your responsibility to make sure you apply for funding as early as possible. When you apply, make sure you include the correct details for:
- the amount you’re requesting for your Tuition Fees Loan
- your programme and stage of study
- your institution (i.e. University of Plymouth).
Until your tuition fee loan is approved, you will be classed as a self-fee payer and could ultimately be expected to pay the tuition fee yourself if approval is not obtained, or subsequently revoked. It is important to check your eligibility each year before enrolling, particularly if you have undertaken any previous study at higher education level.
