(UK and EU students)You don't pay for tuition up front. The government will provide a loan to cover your full tuition charges. You or your parents don't have to contribute anything now – you start to pay them back yourself once you graduate and are earning at least £21,000 a year. Eligible part-time students also have access to loans for tuition fees. They won't have to pay upfront as long as it's their first degree. To apply for a tuition fee loan please contact Student Finance England. The application cycle for 2014/15 is open and we would encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Repaying your loan Repayments will be 9% of any income above £21,000, so the amount you repay each month will depend on your earnings. Examples of monthly repayments for loans covering tuition and living costs: Salary Monthly Repayments £21,000 £0 £21,500 £4 £24,000 £23 £25,000 £30 £27,000 £45 £30,000 £68 Repayments will be deducted automatically from your pay packet. All outstanding repayments will be written off after 30 years.
