Government Funds – Student Finance England 

If you are a UK/EU citizen or have an indefinite stay in the UK, you may be eligible for government assistance through the Student Loan Company to cover tuition fees and some living expenses while studying, depending on your circumstances.

 Tuition fee loans are paid directly to the course provider and cover the entire cost of your course. You can also apply for a Maintenance loan at the same time to help cover some of your expenses. At the start of each term, this loan will be deposited directly into your bank account.

You won’t have to pay back the loan until one year after graduation, when you earn more than a certain amount set by Student Loan. Other grants, such as those for disability or childcare costs, are also available to students, subject to availability and eligibility.
