Full Time Cost
Full-time HE tuition fees for ‘home’ students starting programmes in 2024/2025 will be £8,745 per academic year unless otherwise stated. The exception to this is our Dance, Acting and Production Arts Foundation Degrees and Acting Top Up which are charged at £9250 per academic year, due to the additional teaching hours involved. You can find course fees on the individual course pages, or through UCAS. An overview of our course fees can be found in our fees table.
These may be optional or mandatory based on the course you apply for and are for resources that you may need to be able to study on your course such as materials for art-based courses, a kit for sports based courses or a DBS for those that require a placement. For information relevant to your course please visit the relevant course page which can be found here.
Funding and Loans
Eligible students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of their tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through monthly repayments once you are earning over a certain amount.
If applying for a tuition fee loan, please remember to select the following details:
- Academic year - 2024/2025
- Institution - Luminate Education Group
For those who have the potential to benefit from studying with us at the University Centre, there should be no financial barriers.
Please be aware there are no tuition fee waivers on grounds of circumstance or age. If you have studied in higher education before, either in the UK or elsewhere, this could affect the financial support you receive. We suggest you visit the Student Finance England website here find out your eligibility. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, please contact your own Award Authority as the regulations could be different.
Whether you will be living at home or moving away, you will be able to apply for a maintenance loan from Student Finance England (SFE) for your living costs, such as rent and bills. The amount you receive depends on your household income and where you live and study. Should you be eligible for a loan then it is paid directly into your bank account at the start of each term.
Please note that the amount of maintenance loan you receive is dependent on household income. A maintenance loan entitlement is designed to contribute to your living costs, not to cover them entirely. Visit Understanding Living Costs while Studying at University or College
