If you're having problems with your student finance, contact us.

Undergraduate - England

Standard tuition fees for undergraduate courses at the University are £9,250 per year for a full-time undergraduate degree. If you’re starting with a foundation year, that’ll cost £6,165. Then you’ll move on to paying £9,250 per year for the rest of your degree. Foundation degrees cost £7,195 per year. (Fees may rise with inflation.)

You can take out a tuition fee loan to cover these fees, so you don’t need to pay anything up front.

For your living costs while you’re at university, you can take out a maintenance loan. The amount you can get will depend on your household income; use the Student Finance England calculator to find out how much you can have.

On top of this, the University has three different awards to give you a bit of extra cash while you’re studying. You don’t need to apply for these – we’ll automatically award you the highest-value scholarship that you qualify for.

Standard tuition fees for international students are £12,800 per year for arts programmes and £15,300 for science courses – but substantial discounts and scholarships are available. 

Postgraduate – England

Tuition fees vary by course; you can check the fee for your chosen programme on the course page.  

If you’re going to be studying a Masters course, there’s a loan of £10,000 available. This is a contribution towards your tuition fees and living costs, so you'll probably need extra funding. As well as our scholarships, try the Turn 2 Us grant searchScholarship Hub and Scholarship Search

Professional and Career Development Loans (PCDLs) are offered by a high street bank to students on taught Masters degrees. You may be able to borrow between £300-£10,000, and the Government pays your interest while you study. Repayments begin once you have finished your course (usually after 1-2 months), so you need to be confident that you will be able to repay the loan. Applications must be submitted at least 3 months before your course starts.  To order an application pack or receive further advice/information please call the PCDL helpline on 0800 585 505 or visit the direct.gov website.

I have children

Full-time undergraduate students with children can apply for a means-tested Childcare Grant to cover up to 85% of their childcare costs. The maximum you can claim for 2017 entry is:

  • up to £159.59 per week for 1 child
  • up to £273.60 per week for 2 or more children

The grant helps with childcare costs for children under 15, or under 17 if they have special educational needs.

You can also get a Parents' Learning Allowance of up to £1,617 per year to help with your additional costs. The amount that you receive will depend upon your household income, and unlike the Childcare Grant you do not need to be paying for childcare to qualify.

Any money you get is paid on top of your maintenance loan and you don’t have to pay it back.

I'm a mature student

Mature students are entitled to apply for a Maintenance Loan plus any other amounts available to students, including Childcare Grant and Parents' Learning Allowance. If you are over 25 the amount of Maintenance Loan you will be entitled to will depend upon your household income, which is calculated by Student Finance England, who take into account your unearned income (from savings, dividends, etc.) plus your spouse/partner's income. They do not take into account any income from paid work by students.

I have a disability

Student Finance England offers a Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) to help you with additional costs incurred while studying due to a disability. You may receive help with specialist equipment, travel, or a helper.

I'm a Care Leaver

As well as the standard student finance and help from your local authority that you'll receive, the University of Hull offers additional support. Get in touch with us to find out more.

I'm a Carer

The University of Hull can offer additional support to students aged under 25 who are carers for someone other than their own child. Get in touch with us for more information.

I'm worried about money

It's understandable to be nervous, but there's lots of help out there. As well as the Maintenance Loan you'll be entitled to, the University of Hull offers scholarships to those with a household income of less than £25,000 or 120 UCAS points from three A Levels or equivalent. There's a Hardship Fund too, so if you find yourself struggling while at university we can give a loan or grant to help. 

You might want to think about getting a job during your studies, too - we have a dedicated Job Shop for students, helping you to find work that fits around your timetable. 

I want to study part time

You'll find additional information about the funding available to you as a part time student here.
