Ways to pay your tuition fees
You can choose to pay your tuition fees up-front or take out a Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England, which currently defers payment until you earn over £25,725 per year. At this point you will start paying back 9% of your earnings above £25,725.

How much do I pay back?
You will pay 9% of your income above £25,725. The amount you repay depends on how much you earn. For example, if your salary was £27,000, the 9% would only apply to £1,275, meaning you would only repay £15 a month.
Can my fees change?
You should expect to pay tuition fees for every year in attendance and be aware these fees may increase annually. On the basis of current government guidance any increase is unlikely to exceed the increase in inflation by reference to the Retail Price Index (RPI).
What happens if my income reduces?
If your income falls below £25,725, your repayments stop until you start earning over £25,725 once again.
Up to £25,725 (monthly repayment: none)
£27,000 (monthly repayment: £15 per month)
£30,000 (monthly repayment: £37 per month)
£35,000 (monthly repayment: £74 per month)
£40,000 (monthly repayment: £112 per month)
£45,000 (monthly repayment: £150 per month)
Interest on student loans
You pay interest from the time your first payment is made until you pay your loan back in full.
