Postgraduate Loan Payment Plans

If you have applied to Student Finance and been approved for a Postgraduate Masters Loan or Postgraduate Doctoral Loan, please contact us.

The University offers Postgraduate Loan payment plans to students planning on using their loan from Student Finance to pay their tuition fees. The payment plan will be based on the dates Student Finance confirms your loan payments will be paid.

The payments from Student Finance are paid directly to your account each term (as long as you are progressing at the required rate) and you can then make a payment to the University towards your tuition fees.

Please note the Postgraduate Loans available from Student Finance is a contribution towards your course costs and is unlikely to cover your tuition fees, course material costs and living costs in full during your study.

Get in touch

Where a payment is missed and a mutual arrangement not agreed with the Credit Control Team, sanctions will be applied to your account. 

If you are experiencing difficulties paying your fees, the University has help and advice available for you, both in and out of term time.
