Government loans are available to support your full-time studies here at St George’s, University of London. Repayment is based on what you earn, not what you owe, and you don’t start repaying your undergraduate student loans until after you leave the course and you are earning £25,000 or more per year.

Tuition fee loan

Available to English and EU students. If you live in Northern IrelandScotland or Wales you should visit your local student finance website for information about government loans you may be eligible for.

Eligible undergraduate students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the full cost of their tuition fees for each year of study (partial tuition fee loans are available for the 4-year graduate entry medicine course).

Tuition fee loan payments are made directly to the university.

Only repayable after you leave the course and are earning £25,000 or more per year. Repayments will be calculated at 9% of your income over the £25,000 threshold.

Maintenance loan for living costs

Available to English students. If you live in Northern IrelandScotland or Wales you should visit your local student finance website for information about government loans you may be eligible for.

Eligible students can apply for a maintenance loan for each year of study to help with living costs such as accommodation, food and travel.

The amount you can borrow depends on your household income and whether you are living with parents or outside of the parental home during term time.

Maintainance loan payments are made to the student in three termly instalments.

Only repayable after you leave the course and are earning £25,000 or more per year. Repayments will be calculated at 9% of your income over the £25,000 threshold. If you have both the Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loans these will be repayable as a single loan.

Student loans are issued by the Student Loans Company on behalf of the government – they are not commercial loans. Interest is charged on a student loan from the date you receive it to the date you pay it off. Any outstanding balance is usually written off after 30 years.
