Additional financial support
Tuition fee loans
The tuition fee loan covers your annual tuition fees of £9,000 for academic year 2017/18. The Student Loans Company pays this, on your behalf, directly to the University of Worcester for each year of study. The loan will be reduced by any fee waiver you have been awarded.
Maintenance loans for new students in 2017/18
You can also apply for a maintenance loan for living expenses, such as accommodation and food. This is also administered by the Student Loans Company, and will be paid into your bank account in three installments once you’ve registered at University. The current maximum amount you can borrow is £8,200 if you live away from home, and £6,904 if you live at home. The exact amount you can borrow depends on a number of factors, including your household income.
You can learn more about student loans from the Directgov Student Loans website.

Higher Maintenance Loans are available for students with an underlying eligibility for means-tested welfare benefits.
Loans for tuition fees are available to eligible part-time undergraduate degree students who complete a minimum of 25% of the full-time course load per year (30 credits or more), and started after September 2017.
EU students are eligible for the Tuition Fee Loan.
This is offered by the UK government via the Student Loans Company to all EU and home undergraduate students, giving you the opportunity to borrow any amount up to the full cost of your tuition fees. Visit www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance for more information.
If you are an international student, you will not be eligible for any financial assistance from the UK Government. You will need to apply for this kind of financial help from your home country. You may wish to consider applying for a scholarship.
