OVERVIEW The maximum tuition fee students can be charged is 9,000 in Wales, and 9,250 in the rest of the UK. The tuition fee will be decided by the university or college. They could charge different amounts for different courses. TUITION FEES TUITION FEE SUPPORT A Tuition Fee Loan is available to cover the full cost of their tuition fees. How much Tuition Fee Loan they can get doesnt depend on their household income.

We pay it directly to the university or college once the student has registered. Tuition Fee Loans have to be paid back, but only when theyve left university or college and their income is over 25,000 a year. Students at private universities or colleges can borrow up to 6,165 towards* tuition costs, but only if the course has been approved for funding by the Welsh Government. *Students will have to self-fund any additional fee charged at a private university or college.
