For undergraduate entry in 2017; for students to be eligible for SLC funding, they must be studying a designated course. Courses at alternative providers, including Pearson College London, are designated each year by the Department for Education. We have made an application for our undergraduate courses to also be designated for the 2017-18 academic year. We expect this process to be completed in early 2017.

Tuition fee loans
These are loans from the student finance companies for England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and the money will be sent directly to us to pay your tuition fees. If you're a full-time student, you can borrow up to £6,165 to pay for your tuition fees at an alternative provider such as Pearson College London.
As we are committed to ensuring that talented students with potential have the opportunity to succeed with one of our degrees, we offer all applicants the opportunity to receive a partial fee waiver upon the successful completion of our assessments.
Maintenance fee loans
If you’re planning to study full-time, you may also apply to get a Maintenance Loan to help with your living costs. You can apply for this when you apply for a Tuition Fee Loan. The amount you get depends on your household income and you’ll get money at the start of each term.
Paying back what you've borrowed
You won’t start paying your Tuition Fee Loan or Maintenance Loan back until the April after your degree finishes, and only if you earn above £21,000 a year. If you’re employed, your repayments will be calculated by your employer and taken directly from your salary, then, at the end of the tax year, they’ll be sent to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
You may be entitled to extra funding if you’re from a low-income household, you have children or adult dependents, you have a disability or you’re a care leaver.
