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.

Bursary for progressing Bury College students


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:


  • You must have commenced an undergraduate course of study in September 2018 or later at Bury College University Centre and be paying full-time tuition fees. Fees must be paid via tuition fee loan or you must be self-funded.
  • You must be a full-time UK/EU undergraduate studying a higher education course at Bury College University Centre.
  • The bursary will be paid to you on your first higher education course and not on subsequent courses.
  • You must have successfully completed a Level 3 qualification (e.g. A Levels, Advanced Diploma, or Advanced Apprenticeship) at Bury College in the academic year 2017/18.
  • Payments will be made in two instalments (50% in October and 50% in April) of each consecutive academic year of undergraduate study subject to achieving at least 90% attendance and satisfactory academic progress.
  • Payments will be terminated if you withdraw, are suspended, transfer to another institution or fail your programme of study.


Paying back your fees


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.
