If you're a self-funding student and want some guidance on how to pay your fees, click here.

Undergraduate - England

Standard tuition fees for undergraduate courses at the University are £9,250 per year for a full-time undergraduate degree for 2018 entry, and £6,165 for a Foundation Year. These fees may rise each year with inflation, in line with the maximum fees set by the government. 

Eligible students 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.

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 £10,280 available (this may rise slightly for 2018 entry - Student Finance England are yet to confirm this).

If you're a current student you can access this on campus or create an account using your university email address to search the funding database. If you are not yet a student you can email hefunding@hull.ac.uk to be given access. 

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

Student Loans Company - Childcare Grant

Full-time undergraduate students with children can apply for a means-tested Childcare Grant to cover up to 85% of their childcare costs. The figures for 2018 entry have not yet been announced, but maximums for 2017 entry were:

  • 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.

Apply for the childcare grant through your Student Loans application. 

University of Hull - Child Grant

The University of Hull offers additional support to students with children. 

This is available to undergraduate home/UK students with a residual household income of £25,000 or less per year and who have children ages 16 or under (or up to 19 years if in full time education) and are receiving child benefit. An award of £200 per child will be made up to a maximum of three children.

The grant is not open to NHS funded students (including those receiving Child Dependants Allowance), those receiving a social work bursary, students in their foundation year or studying foundation degrees, or students who have previous experience of Higher Education. Students must also be paying £9,000 or £9,250 tuition fees.

The grant can be applied for annually and evidence must be provided. Eligible students will be contacted in the second semester of the academic year with details on how to apply.

For more information about the University of Hull Child Grant, contact fst@hull.ac.uk

 

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.

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 to care leavers, and those with experience of care. 

The Humber Grant is worth up to a maximum of £1,000, and can include book vouchers. It is paid in two instalments, usually December and May.

To find out more, contact fst@hull.ac.uk

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.

The Humber Grant is available for those who provide unpaid support to look after a family member, parter or friend who needs help because of their age, physical or mental illness, or disability. You don't need to live at the same address as the person you care for. 

The grant will award up to a maximum of £500 and can include book vouchers. It is pain in two instalments, usually December and May. 

To find out more, and see if there are any other options available, please contact fst@hull.ac.uk

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 Support 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.

I'm estranged from my parents

As some of your student support is means tested on your parent’s income, students that are estranged from their parents face barriers due to not having the support (financial and/or otherwise) of their families. The Humber Grant is available to provide additional financial support. 

The grant is worth up to a maximum of £1,000, and can include book vouchers. It is paid in two instalments, usually December and May. 

Eligible students are 'irreconcilably estranged' from their parents on or before the first day of the academic year for which you are applying for funding. And/or you have had no contact with your parents for a period of one year on or before the first day of the academic year for which you are applying. 

For more information about the grant, please contact fst@hull.ac.uk

More support and advice for estranged students is available from the Student Loan Company by emailing estranged@slc.co.uk or from the charity Stand Alone.
