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 2021/22

You will find tuition fees included on the summary page for each course. Home 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).

Please note, the eligibility for Home tuition fees has changed for EU, EEA an Swiss nationals starting a course from September 2021. We are currently awaiting updated guidance from UKCISA to enable us to accurately assess applicants’ fee status. We apologise for the delay this has caused in us providing applicants with the outcome of their application. Once guidance is published, we will endeavour to contact applicants with further information regarding their application as soon as possible. 

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.
