Finance

Foundation Year/HNC/HND/Degree

Students wishing to study a Foundation Year, HNC, HND or Degree will be eligible to apply for a student loan to cover the cost of the tuition fees. This loan will be available to students wanting to study on a part-time or full-time basis.

Access to HE

If you're applying for an Access to HE course with a start date after September 2016 and you're over the age of 19 you can apply for funding through Student Finance England via the Advanced Learner Loan (formally the 24+ Advanced Learners Loan).


EU full-time students

If you’re a full-time student who is an EU national and normally resident in the EU, you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. You cannot apply for maintenance loans and grants.

Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England (SFE)

EU students can access a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England. We recommend that you apply early for SFE support to ensure that your funding is in place in time for the start of term.

Once your loan has been confirmed, SFE will send you a Financial Notification letter showing that you have been approved for a tuition fee loan for CU Scarborough, along with any maintenance support that you can access. In many cases this funding will have been confirmed to us by SFE in advance of your enrolment, but please bring a copy of your letter with you to enrolment as proof that SFE will be paying your fees on your behalf.


Frequently Asked Questions

My funding has not been confirmed?

If you've applied for student finance but not yet received your confirmation, you can still enrol on your course. However, we will expect you to arrange payment by another method while you wait for confirmation to arrive. We will refund any payments that you have made after your student finance has paid its contributions.

I am a UK full-time student – what are my options?

As a full-time student resident in the UK, you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees. You can also apply for a loan to cover your living costs. Certain full-time students also qualify for living cost grants; these are awarded on the basis of household income. Full-time students can apply for tuition fee loans online

Where can I find out more about student loans?

For full information on the types of loans that are available, how much you can get and how you'll be expected to repay more information can be found on: gov.uk.

How and when do I repay the loan?

Full-time and part-time students who start their course after 1 September 2012 begin paying back their student loan once they earn more than £25,000 year. If your income falls below £25,000 a year, your repayments stop. If you're a part-time student earning more than £25,000 a year you start repaying your loan in the April four years after starting your course. This applies even if you're still studying. Students can pay back all or some of their loan at any time without incurring an early repayment charge. 

I am studying part-time – can I get student funding?

Please talk to us first before you apply for your loan. We will need to discuss which modules you'll be studying and what the full-time weighting of these modules will be. At CU Scarborough each module is classed as 25% weighting of a full-time programme, so you can easily calculate your full tuition fee loan once you have finalised which modules you are going to enrol on. This is applicable to all of our courses. 

I can’t find CU Scarborough on my online Student Finance England application?

When you apply for your funding you will need to inform Student Finance England where and what you want to study.  CU Scarborough is not listed. Instead you need to apply to study at Coventry University.

Where do you plan to study

Once you have selected Coventry University, you will be asked which course you have chosen. Begin typing the name of your chosen course to bring up a complete listing. It is at this point that you must make sure that the course you choose has CU Scarborough in its title.

What course will you study

Remember, this can always be changed at a later date if you don’t get the grades you were hoping for or if you change your mind.
