Tuition fee loans for part-time students

Part-time students can apply for a student loan for the first time, meaning applicants do not have to pay tuition fees upfront. 

Students at a publicly-funded university or college can apply for a loan of up to £6,750, and those at a private university can apply for up to £4,500. The money does not need to be paid back until you earn at least £21,000. 

Students at the Open University can also apply. To be eligible for a loan, applicants must be studying a course intensity of at least 25% of the full time equivalent and cannot take more than four times the time it would take to complete the course full-time. 

To apply, or for more information, visit www.studentfinance.direct.gov.uk
