Undergraduate degree tuition fees for 2017 entry+

Undergraduate degree tuition fees for 2017 entry

If you are a UK or EU student beginning your degree course with us in 2017 you will not have to pay your tuition fees up front.

You will be able to take out a tuition fee loan, which you will not repay until after you leave your course and are earning over £21,000.

Tuition fees for 2017 entry are:

UCFB Wembley – £9,250 per year

UCFB Etihad Campus – £9,250 per year

The UK Government have proposed an inflationary fee increase in tuition fees by 2.8% to £9,250 from September 2017, as outlined in a written statement by the Minister of State for Universities and Science on 21st July 2017.

Our degree awarding partner, Bucks New University, have been included in the list of eligible providers who are permitted to increase their fees.

It is our intention to raise our fees for new undergraduate UK Home and EU students commencing study in the 2017-18 academic year to match this revised fee cap.

This increase is subject to final approval and confirmation by the UK Government and other regulatory bodies, such as HEFCE and OFFA.

Applicants for the 2017-18 academic year should expect the fees to be set at this new rate. However, all applicants will be contacted should this information change.

For further information on our tuition fees, email studentfinance@ucfb.com or call our Student Recruitment & Admissions Office on 03332417333.

Student loans+

Student loans

Many UK undergraduate students are entitled to a combination of grants and loans to cover living costs.

To cover the costs of studying you can apply for:

      • A Tuition Fee Loan to cover the cost of your fees in full
      • A Maintenance Loan for covering costs like rent (full time students only)
      • A Maintenance Grant if your household income is less than £42,600 (full time students only)
      • Extra financial help if you have children depending on you or a disability
      • Full-time students have to pay back any loans plus interest once you complete your course and start earning more than £21,000 a year. You don’t have to repay any grant or bursaries.

These may vary because of factors such as residency and household income but as a general guide the maximum grants/loans for 2017 are around £6,890 for students living in England, away from home.

All UK and EU undergraduate students are entitled to an amount of funding from the Student Loans Company to pay their fees.

There are a number of funding schemes available, dependant on personal circumstances. These will be discussed on an individual, one to one basis with the students and their families at a UCFB Applicant Day. UCFB offers tailored financial advice and guidance to each applicant to ensure that they receive the very best and most targeted advice and support.

**UCFB update on Student Finance for EU students**+

**UCFB update on Student Finance for EU students**

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students beginning their university degrees in the 2017/18 in the UK will be eligible for student funding support for the duration of their course, even if the UK exits the EU during that period.

Update
“The rules applying to EU nationals, or their family members, who are applying to study a course which starts in the 2017/18 Academic Year and which attracts student support, are also unchanged.  The SFE will assess these applications against existing eligibility criteria, and will provide loans and/or grants in the normal way. EU nationals, or their family members, who are assessed as eligible to receive grants and/or loans by the SFE in the 2017/18 Academic Year will be eligible for this support and for home fee status for the duration of their study.  These eligibility criteria set out that for students beginning study from August 2017, EU nationals must have been resident in the UK for at least five years or be EEA migrant workers in order to apply for a maintenance loan.”

UCFB welcomes this news and recognises the important contributions that EU students make to our institution.
