I am starting my part-time course in 2017/18


Tuition Fees

The University will charge Home students £1,540 for each 30 credit module in 2017/18. The total amount of fees you will be charged will depend on how many modules you take.

Tuition fees for subsequent years of the course have yet to be confirmed. The University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government in the second and subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases will be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).

There may be additional costs for your degree, please visit warwick.ac.uk/cll for more information.

What financial help is available?

A non means-tested Tuition Fee Loan is available from Student Finance England (SFE). SFE provide financial support on behalf of the government to students entering higher education in the UK. The Tuition Fee Loan is paid directly to the University to cover the cost of your fees, so there are no upfront costs to pay. Part-time students currently do not qualify for student loans to help with living costs.

Your eligibility for the Tuition Fee Loan will depend on certain criteria, such as your nationality and residency status, your previous study and the number of modules you are studying. You can view the full criteria at gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies.

If you have a disability, long-term health condition or specific learning difficulty there is additional non-repayable support available. Disabled Students’ Allowances are intended to help with any disability-related costs you might have. Any support you receive will be based on your individual needs and the number of modules you are studying, not your household income.

Applications for part-time Tuition Fee Loans are open now and can be made online at gov.uk/student-finance. Applying early will ensure your funding is in place for the start of your course. You will need to provide evidence of your identity (current passport or birth/ adoption certificate) and your National Insurance number. If you wish to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances you can request an application form as part of this process.

How do tuition fee loan repayments work?

  1. Repayments will begin in the April after you have completed or left your course, or after four years (whichever comes first).
  2. Repayments will start only when your income is over £25,000 per year.
  3. You will repay 9p for every pound you earn over the threshold.
  4. Repayments are deducted automatically through the tax system. If self-employed or working overseas separate repayment arrangements exist.
  5. If your income falls below the threshold repayments will stop automatically.
  6. There are no early repayment penalties and you can choose to make voluntary repayments to your loan at any time.
  7. Any outstanding loan is written off after 30 years or if you become permanently unfit for work or die.
  8. Interest is applied to your loan at the point the payment is made and is linked to the Retail Prices Index (RPI).
