As a Home student you may be eligible to apply for a fee loan and maintenance support from Student Finance. There are eligibility rules, but if you do qualify, you can apply for the following package offered by the UK Government:

  • A Student Loan for tuition fees is available to most home/EU full-time undergraduate students and home/EU PGCE students. The loan will match the amount of tuition fees you have to pay, which is currently set at £9250. Loans are paid back after students have left university and are earning at lease £25,725 a year or more. The figure varies if you are living abroad. You can find more information about tuition fee loans on the King's webpages.
  • Maintenance loans for living costs are part of the financial student support package available to assist most new and existing full-time home undergraduate and PGCE students with their living expenses. The amount of student loan you can get will depend on the year you started your course, your household income, where you live and the type of course you are doing. You can find more about maintenance loans on the King's webpages.
  • The maximum maintenance loan available to most students living away from the family home in London for 2019/20 is £11,672. This increases to £11,929 if you are eligible for welfare benefits whilst on your full-time course. The amount available to you will be based on your household income, as assessed by Student Finance.
  • If you have dependants or need help to attend university because of a physical or learning disability, then Student Finance can assess you for extra help, known as Targeted Support. For more information on these funds, please visit the government's webpages.
  • The Student Finance Calculator will let you calculate the amount of maintenance loan you're likely to receive.

Further information, including details of how to apply and information about repayment, are available on the gov.uk and Student Room websites.

King’s also offers a wide range of scholarships and bursaries, including our King's Living Bursary, which are published and regularly updated on our Fees and Funding webpages.
