Student support packages for part-time undergraduate students

Pre September 2012 Entrants

Eligible students can apply for a Fee Grant and Course Grant. Students must be studying 50 per cent or more of an equivalent full-time course (at least 60 credits per academic year) and can apply for financial support from Student Finance England.

Post September 2012 Entrants

Part-time entrants who started their course on or after September 2012 will be able to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England. Students have to be studying over 25% of the full-time course per-year. For further information please visit the government pages on student finance.

Students who already have a degree qualification will not be eligible for a fee grant or a course grant. There is no age limit when applying for support.
