Higher education student loans

Tuition fee loans are available to EU or UK students studying on both full and part-time higher education courses at East Riding College. The loan goes directly to paying for your course fees and you don't start paying it back until you're earning £27,295 a year. Full-time students can also apply for a maintenance loan to help with living costs. 

How much will my repayments be?

Once you reach the repayment threshold of £27,295, your repayments will begin. Examples of monthly repayments as your earnings rise are in the table below. You can find out more about repayments here: https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-student-loan/overview
