This bursary may be used to help with the costs associated
with studying such as travel, textbooks, equipment or anything else
that helps you.

Repaying your Student Loan
You will not start to make repayments until you earn over
£21,000 a year. If your income falls below £21,000, your repayments
will stop. You will not start to make repayments until the year you
complete your course or three years from the start of your course,
whichever is earlier.
The repayment rate is 9% of your income, above the first
£21,000, the amount you repay will depend entirely on what you
earn, not on how much you borrowed. Any outstanding balance is
written off after 30 years.
