Student Finance England & Wales Loans
Eligible students will be able to apply for a student loan to cover tuition fees through Student Finance England and Student Finance Wales. Students living in Wales may also be eligible for a combination of a loan and grant depending on your household income.
Our courses are awaiting confirmation of our designation from HEFCW for the academic year 2024– 2025. This means that if you are eligible to apply for funding through Student Finance you will need to wait until we have received the designation and postgraduate applications for Student Finance England and Wales are open. We usually hear in the Spring with an update from HEFCW and will communicate this to all relevant applicants as soon as possible.
MSc & MArch students may be eligible for a Postgraduate Loan to cover both tuition fees and living costs via Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales (Available to students taking a full MSc or MRes only, as the Postgraduate Loan is not available for our Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma courses).
If you decide to study part time, to receive the Postgraduate Loan you must complete the course within double the time of the full-time option – three years.
These loans are currently only available for people who are normally resident in England or in Wales. Unfortunately, Scotland and Northern Ireland have confirmed that they are not currently offering postgraduate loans for courses from alternative providers like CAT.
