Higher Education (HE) Loans


Here at Northumberland College our higher education tuition fees will be £6,000 per year for UK and EU residents starting a full-time Foundation Degree, HNC or HND course in 2016/2017.

Tuition fees for part-time Foundation Degree, HNC and HND courses starting in 2016/17 will be £3,600 per year.


Remember with an HE loan:

  • There are no up-front costs, you may apply to the Student Loans Company.
  • You will not start to make any repayments on your loan until you earn over £21,000 a year.
  • If your income falls below £21,000, your repayments will stop.
  • The repayment rate is 9% of your income, above the first £21,000, so the amount you repay could be as little as £30 per month.
  • Any outstanding balance is written off after 30 years.
  • You will start to repay your HE loan in the year after you finish studying or after three years from the start of your course, whichever is earlier, if you are earning more than £21,000.

Deadline dates to apply for an HE loan are posted on the Student Loan Company website.
