Fees and financial support
Loughborough University will charge the following annual fees for full-time UK/EU entrants (including Isle of Man and the Channel Islands) in 2013/14:
|All undergraduate degree courses||£9,000|
|Science and Engineering Foundation Studies||£9,000|
|Sandwich placement or year abroad||£800|
|You should prepare for an inflationary increase in future years|
Isle of Man and Channel Islands: althought the fees above apply, funding support differs to UK/EU entrants - see our Fees and Financial website for more details.
Tuition fee loans
Rather than pay your tuition fees while studying at the University, you can take out a Government student loan for tuition, and defer payment until you have left Loughborough and are earning a minimum salary.
Student loan for living costs
To help with living costs, eligible students permanently resident in the UK will also be able to take out a student loan for maintenance. The amount that can be borrowed depends on where you live and where you are studying. In 2013/14, the maximum loan for English students living away from home, but outside London, will be £5,500.
There may be further financial assistance available from the Government for disabled students and those with dependants.
For further information contact Student Finance England.
Government maintenance grant
In addition, UK students from low income families may be eligible for a maintenance grant to help with accommodation and other living costs.
The level of support varies between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and the amount you receive is dependent on your household income, as assessed by the appropriate student finance award agency. As a guide, students from England whose household income is £25,000 per year or less will receive £3,354 in 2013/14.
Access to Learning Fund
The University has an Access to Learning Fund which exists to provide assistance for UK students who experience severe hardship.
Further information is available from the Student Advice and Support Service.
Non-EU international students can obtain information about fee levels from our fees and funding website.

There may be additional costs associated with your course, such as for special materials or field trips. Further information about these costs can be found via our fees and funding website.
Students who are obliged to re-take examinations are required to pay a re-assessment fee.
For information about accommodation and associated costs see our Accommodation section.
Full details of payment arrangements for tuition fees and accommodation costs will be sent to new students once they are firmly accepted at the University.
Before you begin your course you will be asked to provide a guarantee showing you have access to the necessary financial resources.
Part-time and casual work
To supplement their income, some students work part-time or take temporary holiday jobs.
