The Answer is yes you can! Don’t be daunted by the latest rise in university fees!
Top of the morning t’ye!
How’s it going? So a lot of people are always asking questions such as: “How much does University cost?” and “How can I get any help with funds?” Let us first answer the question how much?
I will do another blog on helping with funds, but for now let us get on with the cost for the 2013/14 entry:
- The University will charge £9,000 per year for full-time Honours degrees in areas where the cost of provision is high, e.g. science, technology, engineering, etc.
- All other full-time Honours degrees will be £8,000 per year.
- Students studying a full-time Foundation Degree or HND will be charged £5,000 per year.
The cost of your course will depend on a number of factors, the most important being what course you choose and where you are living when you apply for the course. For example, if you live in Wales, and have not previously studied at a higher education level, you will normally only have to pay £3,575 towards your tuition fees. Sounds harsh to us English students coming over here, but that is just how it works I’m afraid; look on the bright side; we do get prescriptions for free!

To give you an added helping hand, each undergraduate course has an online fee calculator on the individual course pages which will tell you how much you will have to pay for the course.
Still not convinced? Paying back £9000 after you graduate seems tough, I know, but here’s the positive:
- You only have to start repaying your loan after you have left your course and only when you are earning at least £21,000.
- If for any reason your annual income falls below £21,000 your repayments will be suspended.
- If your annual income is less than £21,000 then you have no monthly repayments to worry about.
- If your annual income is up to £25,000, you pay back £30 a month.
- If your annual income is up to £30,000, then you pay back £67.50 a month.
- If your annual income is up to £35,000, you pay £105 a month.
- If your annual income is up to £40,000, you pay £142.50 a month.
But a word of advice, don’t pay it all back at once, pace yourself, it will be to your advantage in the end!
Hope that helps!
Until next time.
