Great investment

Taking out significant tuition and living cost loans may seem daunting and a long term financial commitment and it is understandable that you may have concerns about this, but your son/daughter is in investing in their future and the repayments are very reasonable.

A university education is likely to open doors to employment opportunities and higher earning potential as well as creating contacts, learning new skills and adding to your CV.

How it works  

Tuition fee loans are available to both full-time and part-time undergraduate students, and repayments only start once your annual income is above £21,000 a year. In fact, even when they start earning £25,000, then you will only be paying back at a rate of £1 a day.

Loans and grants are also available for living expenses and it is important to remember that these are not commercial arrangements but are services from the UK Government.
