A note for EU students commencing study in or after academic year 2021/22

EU, other EEA and Swiss national students who are starting their studies in the UK in or after the 2021/22 academic year should be aware that there are important changes to the national tuition fee regulations and student finance eligibility criteria.  Many EU students will no longer be eligible for home fee status or student finance, although there will be some exceptions. Please visit the UK government website for further details. All EU, EEA and Swiss national students who are considering starting a course in the UK in or after academic year 2021/22 are advised to check their eligibility with Student Finance England as soon as possible and well in advance of commencing study.

Loans and bursaries are available to support eligible students' university tuition fees and living costs. You will not have to repay your student loan until after you leave the course and your income is over the threshold amount for your repayment plan.  The income thresholds are subject to change.  The threshold for repayment plan 2 is currently £27,295 per year.

Tuition fees 2022/23

You will find information about tuition fees on the summary page for each of our courses. Home students will not usually need to pay the tuition fees up front as non-means tested tuition fee loans are available from Student Finance England.

All students should check their eligibility for financial support with the relevant funding provider(s) in advance of joining their course.

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.

Please visit our Student loans page for more information. 

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

You will not have to start paying back your undergraduate student loans until after you leave the course and your income is over the threshold for your repayment plan. Repayment is based on what you earn, not what you owe, and all outstanding debt will be written off after a repayment term of 30 years (this repayment term is subject to change). Please visit the GOV.uk website for further details.

Students from lower income households who are undertaking their first undergraduate degree, and are eligible for support from Student Finance England, 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.

NHS Bursary tuition fee grant for later year(s) of Medicine (MBBS)

The later year(s) of our 4 and 5 year Medicine 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 our NHS-funded degrees page for further details.

Please note that graduate students undertaking the 5-year undergraduate Medicine course will not be eligible for the tuition fee loan from Student Finance England and will need to self-fund the first four years’ tuition fees. Different rules apply to the 4-year graduate entry Medicine course.
