Eligible UK and EU students can apply to the Government for a tuition loan, which is paid direct to the University. This has a low interest-rate which is charged from the time the first part of the loan is paid to the University until you have repaid it.
Our fees and funding section provides information and advice on money matters.
Eligible students can apply to Student Finance England for a tuition fee loan to cover the full cost of tuition. The loan is paid directly to the University.
Eligible students can apply to Student Finance England for a loan to cover living costs. The loan is paid into your bank account in three instalments – one at the start of each term. The maximum maintenance loan in 2017/18 is £11,002 if you live away from home and study at Kingston University or £7,097 if you live with your parents whilst studying.
The maintenance loan is partly income-assessed – to find out how much you may be able to receive please visit the Student Finance Calculator.
To apply for a tuition and/or maintenance loan, you need to create a Student Finance account and submit an online application with Student Finance England. Please see the links below if you are from another UK or EU country.

Additional support is available from Student Finance England for disabled students and students with children.
The package of funding available to students from other parts of the UK is slightly different. Please visit the relevant authority for more information:
Students from other EU countries who have been resident in the UK for at least five years prior to the start of the course are eligible for tuition and maintenance loans and should apply to Student Finance England.
Other EU students can apply to the Student Finance England European Team for a tuition fee loan only. You will need to make sure you have adequate funds to support your living expenses.
Students are supplied with materials that are adequate to fulfil the requirements of each module, so no further costs are required to successfully complete the work required for assessment. Where ever possible we aim to support new students with course-related equipment costs. For example, this year new students received an induction pack that includes lab coats and calculators and engineering students received vouchers for the costs towards the purchase of safety boots.
Any compulsory field trip cost is covered by the University. On occasion optional field trips are offered to students and it is expected that students will cover these costs. The University strives to keep these costs to a minimum.
In addition to these course-specific additional costs, it is likely that you may incur extra costs as a student at Kingston University. It is useful for you to be aware of the types of things you may have to pay for. Find out more.
