Student Finance Explained
Universities can charge up to £9,000 per year for tuition fees. UCS has set its fees at £8,000 for Honours degrees and £7,500 for Foundation degrees for 2013-14.
All students can apply for a tuition fee loan so no fees have to be paid up front. UK students starting their first degree can also receive a maintenance loan.
Loan repayments only begin when students have finished university and are earning over £21,000.
The repayment amount is fixed at 9% of any earnings over £21,000.
Loan repayments will stop automatically if a graduate stops work or their salary drops below £21,000.
Any loans outstanding 30 years after graduation will be wiped out.
Student loans do not affect an individuals credit rating or the ability to get a mortgage.
