Loans and bursaries are available to support your university tuition fees and living costs. You will not have to repay your student loan until after you leave the course and you are earning over £25,000 a year.

Tuition fees 2019/20

You will find tuition fees included on the summary page for each course. Home and EU students will not usually need to pay the course fee up front as non-means tested tuition fee loans are available from Student Finance England.

The later year(s) of our 4 and 5 year Medicine MBBS programmes are also supported by NHS Student Bursaries, who currently provide a non-means tested partial or full tuition fee grant to eligible students. The NHS support available differs depending on the course studied so please see the specific course page for further details.

All students are advised to check their eligibility for financial support with the relevant funding provider(s).

Financial support quick facts

To cover the costs of studying, eligible students can apply for:

  • a tuition fee loan

  • a maintenance loan to help with the cost of living (a higher rate is available to students in receipt of certain benefits)

  • extra help if you have a disability or if you financially support children or adult dependants.

MBBS students in an NHS-funded year of study can also apply for a reduced rate maintenance loan from Student Finance England.

You will not have to pay back your student loans until after you leave the course and start earning £25,000 or more per year. Repayment is based on what you earn, not what you owe, and all outstanding debt will normally be written off after 30 years. Please visit Student Loan Repayment for further details.

Students from lower income households who are undertaking their first undergraduate degree may also be eligible for our University bursary, the St George’s Opportunity Fund Grant. Please visit our Grants and Bursaries page for more details.

You do not have to pay back grants, scholarships or bursaries.

Please note that UK students on the St George’s, University of London programme at the University of Nicosia are not eligible for funding from Student Finance England or NHS Student Bursaries.

Alumni discount

Our alumni will also benefit from a tuition fee discount of 10%. This can also be taken off the remaining tuition fee if awarded a scholarship.

Graduates of St George's degree courses or those taught by the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education may be eligible for a 10% tuition fee alumni discount for graduate study.

To be eligible for an alumni discount you must:

  • be self-funding – courses fully funded by the NHS or students receiving employer or sponsor funding will not be eligible for the alumni discount

  • be offered a place on a PgCert, PgDip, MRes or MSc course awarded by St George’s, University of London. Visit the course pages to see which degrees are eligible for the discount.
