  • If you're a student from England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you can apply to Student Finance Online Services for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. The loan is not means tested.
  • If you're an international student from outside of the EU, then you're likely to pay overseas tuition fee rates and will not be entitled to help with tuition fees. 

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
