If you require a visa to study in the UK

If you are a Non-EEA student who requires Tier 4 sponsorship you will need to pre-pay the sum of £3,000 before The University of Law can issue your CAS. It is recommended that this payment is made at least 6 weeks prior to the course start date to allow enough time for you to apply for and receive your visa. Once the CAS is approved the £3,000 pre-payment can be offset against the 1st instalment of tuition fees. Tier 4 visa students can choose to pay their tuition fees in three equal instalments.

Please note: Students undertaking the online part-time course do not require a Tier 4 visa, but may (depending on nationality) require another type of visa to attend induction, study weekends or assessments. If you are unsure whether you require a visa, you should get advice from a solicitor or the UKVI. If you seek advice from a solicitor you may have to pay for that advice.

Paying your course fees

The course fees cover your tuition, course materials and learning resources. If for any reason you need to resit your exams, these will be charged separately.

We have a useful download to give you all the information you should need about paying for your course.

Funding Your Studies

There are two main costs you will need to consider when applying for an undergraduate degree: tuition fees and living/study costs, known as ‘maintenance’.

All undergraduate courses The University of Law will be running during the 2020 academic year have been designated to receive student support, with the following exceptions, because they do not meet the undergraduate funding criteria:

  • January start 4.5 year LLB
  • Senior Status LLB
  • 1 year International Foundation Years
  • International Business Management (top up)
  • International Foundation Programmes

For 2020, if you attend an eligible course you may be able to apply for a loan of up to £9,250 towards your 2020 full-time course fee (£11,100 for the LLB (Hons) Accelerated Law Degree), or up to £6,935 if you attend a part time course.

If you’re successful in securing a UK Government fee loan, the tuition fee element of your fee will be paid directly to The University of Law in three instalments throughout the academic year.

Students can usually apply for funding early in the preceding March and applications need to be submitted within 9 months of the start of the year in order to be accepted by Student Finance England.

This loan is not means-tested and therefore most UK students should be eligible to receive the maximum £9,250 fee loan or your full annual fee (whichever is lowest), unless you have studied a first degree previously. You can also choose to borrow a reduced lesser amount from the SLC or choose to fund the course yourself.

Also known as living cost support, students studying on a full-time or part-time course are eligible to apply for maintenance support to help you pay for living costs such as accommodation, food and travel. The amount each individual will receive is affected by household income and circumstances and where you reside within the UK.

Online courses and EU students are not eligible for maintenance support.

The first instalment of any maintenance support provided by the SLC will not be released until The University of Law has confirmed you have attended your course and confirmed your individual student support number as issued by the SLC.

The exact amount of support each student will receive will depend on the amount of household income and where you opt to study and live. If you are a student in receipt of means tested benefits whilst in study, you may qualify for a higher maintenance loan to assist towards additional costs of dependent children or a partner.

You can find more information on the relevant government website below.

The financial support you can receive depends on your funding status. Your funding status is based on where you live and for how long. The summary below doesn’t cover all circumstances - even if you don’t meet these criteria, you may still qualify for student finance funding assistance. Please visit the UK Government website for more detailed information.

Classification

To be classified as a European Union (EU) student, you must be a national of an EU country or the ‘relevant family member’ of such a national, when you commence the course and you have also been ordinarily resident in the EEA and/or Switzerland for the three years preceding the first day of the first academic year of the course – not mainly for educational purposes.

Maintenance Support

If you’re an EU student, you will not be eligible to apply for a Maintenance Loan or Maintenance Grant for your living costs. You should contact the relevant department within your home country’s government to find out what funding may be available to support your studies in the UK.

Alternatively, contact your local British Council office who will be able to provide you with details of scholarships and other sources of funding you may be able to apply for.

If you are an EU national that has lived in the UK for at least five years immediately prior to the start of the course - not mainly for educational purposes, you may be eligible to be classed as a UK student and become eligible to apply for additional support for living costs. Please review the UK student section for more information.

How to apply for student finance

If you are a student from the European Union (EU), you will need to submit a paper based application from April 2019. The forms and guides are available from the UK Government website for students from other EU countries. The government have confirmed that EU students can continue to apply for student loan funding and scholarships, post-Brexit. What or how much you are eligible for will still be dependent on your individual status and eligibility, so please check the website links in the Maintenance Support section above to confirm what is relevant for you.

Paying your fees

How you will be required to pay the tuition fees will depend on your residency or funding status.

If you accept a place at The University of Law and then decide you do not wish to take up this place, you will need to request the cancellation in writing to the admissions department on or before the 16th September 2019 in order not to be liable for the first instalment of tuition fees.

International students are all students that do not meet the criteria to be UK or EU students, this includes students who require a Student Route visa to study at the University.

The financial support you can receive depends on your funding status. Your funding status is based on where you have lived and for how long. The summary below doesn’t cover all circumstances - even if you don’t meet these criteria, you may still qualify for student finance. Please visit the UK Government website for more detailed information.

Loans

International students are not eligible for UK government funding schemes open to UK students. You should contact the relevant department within your home country’s government to find out what funding may be available to support your studies in the UK. Alternatively, contact your local British Council office who will be able to provide you with details of scholarships and other sources of funding you may be able to apply for. In addition to public sources, commercial lenders may be able to provide loan schemes to cover the cost of fees and living expenses.

If you are applying for financial support, we ask that you have accepted your offer of a place before sending us any funding application requests to be completed on your behalf.

Scholarships

Many international students fund their studies in the UK through scholarship awards. There are numerous scholarship schemes that you may be able to apply for, and the British Council provides information on scholarship schemes that are available within your own country for study in the UK. You may also want to look for scholarships that may be available from local and/or national government and private charities/organisations.

More Information

Your local British Council office can provide you with details of scholarships and other sources of funding that you can apply for as an international student. Visit the British Council website for contact details for your local British Council office.

How to pay your fees

How you will be required to pay the tuition fees will depend on your residency or funding status. More information on how to pay your tuition fees will be sent to you once you have accepted an offer of a place on an undergraduate course at The University of Law. More information about paying your fees can be found in our terms and conditions, and in the How to pay your course fees download below.
