Undergraduate and postgraduate tuition fees

2020 ENTRY UNDERGRADUATE TUITION FEES
2019 Entry Undergraduate Tuition Fees

Tuition fees is an area than often causes people a great deal of concern, particularly around how they will be able to afford to study a degree and pay for tuition fees on their chosen programme. It is important to remember that the majority of UK or EU students beginning a degree course with us in 2019 will not have to pay tuition fees up front. The full cost of our tuition fees can be covered by a tuition fee loan, which you will not repay until after you leave your course and are earning over £25,725.

Eligibility for tuition fee loans can depend on a number of factors such as where you have been living during the past 3-5 years and applicants should seek advice from Student Finance England if they are unsure as to whether or not they will be eligible for a tuition fee loan.

Tuition fees for 2019 entry are £9,250 at both campuses for Home and EU students. The fees for International students are £14,250. For further information on our tuition fees, email fees@ucfb.com or call our Student Recruitment & Admissions Office on 03330605114.

  • Living and studying in London away from parental home £11,672.00

Postgraduate student loans

A Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,906.00 can help with course fees and living costs while you study a postgraduate master’s course.

To start your application, please click here or click here to check your eligibility.

Funding for postgraduate loans is different if you normally live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Moving somewhere to study doesn’t count as normally living there, so please check with you local awarding authority (SAASStudent Finance Wales or Student Finance NI) to see if you would be eligible.

You have to repay your Postgraduate Loan at the same time as any other student loans you have. You’ll be charged interest from the day you get the first payment.

You can also get extra support if you have a disability.

To check your eligibility, please follow this link.

For more information on Postgraduate loans, please email fees@ucfb.com.

Scholarships and bursaries

Means-tested bursaries are intended to assist undergraduate applicants who genuinely require financial assistance with the cost of studying. Means-tested bursaries are available for students at UCFB Wembley and UCFB Etihad Campus.

Students at Wembley classified as Home/EU status with a residual household income of up to £40,000 may apply for a UCFB Wembley means tested bursary. Each bursary will be valued up to £3,500 and a limited number will be available. Similarly, students at the Etihad Campus classified as Home/EU status with a residual household income of up to £30,000 may apply for a UCFB Etihad Campus means tested bursary. Each bursary will be valued up to £2,000 and a limited number will be available.

A large number of scholarships are also available recognising a variety of achievements such as outstanding female applicants, aspiring media personnel and elite athletes.

Cost of living

It is important to keep in mind that studying in higher education can be expensive, particularly when you are living away from home and paying for your own rent and food. Many students are eligible to receive a maintenance loan from Student Finance England, the student finance calculator can help you to get a better idea of how much money you could expect to receive in your first year of study.

In addition to student finance, UCFB also offers means tested bursaries to students who meet our eligibility criteria with awards of up to £3,500 in London or £2,000 in Manchester to help with the cost of accommodation or travel. These awards can be extended into your second and third year of study and many students find that this helps considerably with their cost of living.

Additional costs may be incurred during the time of study. Please visit each individual programme page for an example of what these costs might be.

Our Student Services also offer assistance to current students through hardship loans and budgeting support to help you when you need a little extra assistance from us.
