The information below relates to funding offered by the UK Government and the University for students who intend to start a first undergraduate degree in September 2020.
From the UK Government
Starting University in September 2020
Tuition Fee Loan
The Tuition Fee Loan offered for 2020 will be up to £9,250 . This is likely to be the fee for the University of Nottingham undergraduate courses, for new students with 'home' fee status, from September 2020
Living Cost (Maintenance) Loan
The maximum maintenance loan you will be able to apply for in 2020/21 is £9,203. You can receive some of the loan without having a household income assessment carried out, but if your household income is around £62,000 or below you can receive a higher rate of loan. We will give further details, including the Government's expected contribution from the person/people whose income has been used within the assessment process, when advised.
If you decide to stay at home and live with your parents while you are a student, the amount of loan you can receive is less: further details to follow.
Please note the loan rate for all students in their final year is less.
Grants are available depending on your specific circumstances and awards are assessed on your household income. These are the Childcare Grant, Adult Dependants' Grant, and Parents Learning Allowance.
If you already hold an honours degree please refer to our ELQ factsheet under Useful LInks or call us for further information.
If you are hoping to study Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy or Dietetics you may also be eligible for the Learning Support Funds offered through the NHS
