As a full-time or part-time Bury College University Centre student you won’t need to pay any up-front fees. You can also apply for a loan to cover your tuition fees.
If you are eligible for a loan this will be automatically paid by the Student Loans Company and then transferred into a student loan account in your name. Additional financial support may be available for some full-time courses, subject to specific conditions. Student Finance England have produced a step-by-step guide to help you through your student finance journey. Please click here for details.
Bury College University Centre is able to offer additional support if you are progressing directly from a Bury
College Level 3 full-time course onto a full-time higher education course. A £500 bursary will be paid each academic year of your course in two instalments and is subject to the conditions detailed below:
As a full-time student you will only be asked to pay back your fees (plus interest) once you graduate and start earning over £21,000 a year. Part-time students who earn over £21,000 a year will have to start paying back their loans (plus interest) after four years even if their course hasn't finished.
You will be asked to pay back 9 per cent of your income over the threshold of £21,000 a year. The Student Loans Company offers affordable repayment plans. For example, if you finish your course and are earning £25,000 you will pay 9% of £4,000 which is £360. This means you pay back £30 per month.
