Fees and funding

Students

Our current fees for undergraduate degrees are:

Online students: £6,165 per annum
UK/EU campus students: £6,165 per annum
International campus students: £9,750 per annum
Pre-sessional English: £1,400

These fees are applicable for the 2017/2018 academic year only.

Tuition fees may increase for every new academic year and for new course intakes dependent on government policy and to take into account inflation. Therefore, you may be charged different fees for subsequent years of your course. For more information please view our 2017 Fee Schedule and the Instalment Schedule applicable to your course.

More details on the definitions being used to classify each student.

The fees can be paid in full on or before 18 September 2017* (if you’re starting in 2017) or you can pay your tuition fees by three equal instalments (UK/EU) as follows:

Year 1Due on or before
Instalment 1 18 September 2017
Instalment 2 1 January 2017/2018
Instalment 3 1 April 2017/2018

More information regarding fees and instalment schedules can be found in our terms and conditions.  

Tuition fee loan

If you’re successful in securing a UK Government fee loan, any payment of fees must be made directly to The University of Law in three instalments throughout the course. As we’re a private institution, the maximum fee loan that can be awarded to study a full-time undergraduate degree with us is £6,165 per year, which is what we charge UK and EU students. Students will be able to apply for Government funding from March 2017 for 2017 entry (as per applicants to all universities).

If you have secured a UK Government loan, you need to provide us with a copy of your University and College Payment Advice letter and confirm your individual Student Support Number in order for the University to receive tuition fee payments from the Student Loans Company (SLC).

If you’re unable to provide this notice from the SLC at registration, you’ll be responsible for paying the full tuition until the University has seen evidence of your support entitlement.

This loan is not means-tested and therefore most UK students should be eligible to receive the maximum £6,000 loan, unless you have studied a first degree previously. You can also choose to borrow a lesser amount (or none) from the SLC.

Maintenance support

Also known as a living cost support, students studying on a full-time course are eligible to apply for maintenance support to help pay for living costs such as accommodation, food and travel. The amount each individual will receive is affected by the household income, circumstances and where you reside within the UK.

Please read the relevant section overleaf to calculate the financial support you are entitled to, depending on your area of ordinary residence prior to starting your course. Unfortunately, EU students and part-time students are not eligible for living cost support.

The first instalment of any maintenance support provided by the SLC will not be released until The University of Law has confirmed you have attended your course and confirmed your individual Student Support Number as issued by the SLC.

These maintenance loans are not required to be repaid by the student until you have left the course and are earning an income.

The exact amount of support each student will receive will depend on the amount of household income, where you opt to study and live. As a rough guide if your household receives under £25,000 per annum you will be entitled to receive the maximum support available.

If you are a student in receipt of means tested benefits whilst in study, you may qualify for a higher maintenance loan to assist towards additional costs of dependent child(ren) or partner.

Students that started a course prior to Sept 2016 will be classed as “continuing” students and as such will be entitled to a different package of financial support.

Repayment

The amount you owe will increase each year with interest. Interest is charged at the rate of inflation plus 3%. You don’t start repaying your tuition fee and maintenance loans until you are in work and earning over £21,000 a year. The amount you repay is calculated at a rate of 9% of your income over £21,000. So, if your salary is £25,000 a year, you pay 9% of £4,000, which works out as £6.92 a week.

How to apply for student finance (UK students)

You can apply for student finance online or by completing paper applications.

You should apply for support as soon as possible to allow time for your application to be processed prior to enrolment. If you apply after 31 May 2017 you may not receive confirmation of how much support you’re entitled to receive before the course starts and may experience delays in the funding being released.
