Student Finance Explained

HE TUITION FEE LOAN:

Every new student is entitled to a Tuition Fee Loan (from Student Finance England) of up to £9,250 to cover tuition costs.

The amount you borrow is the amount that the College charges and it does not depend on your household income nor do they check your credit report.

Liable fees

If you choose to leave your degree early you could still be liable for course costs. Read full information here.

Please note:

*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).

If you require any assistance applying for your tuition fees, please don’t hesitate to drop our Careers team an email at careers@kidderminster.ac.uk and they’ll be able to advise and walk you through the process!
