Undergraduate Student Finance

Undergraduate Fees & Funding

Moving on to university is an exciting time. At the University of Cumbria, we want to make sure you have everything you need to start your studies, including tuition funding and the right financial support. Our undergraduate fees and funding page outlines everything UK home students need to know about applying for tuition loans, calculating maintenance loans, and the scholarships, bursaries, and grants that are available. 

Student Finance England changed the criteria for EU students looking to secure home fee status. You can find the full details in a Government Statement. Exemptions apply to those who have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme, as well as Irish nationals, who may still be eligible for the UK tuition fee rate and associated financial support. Irish nationals should apply to Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI).

For EU students, we are offering an automatic fee reduction scholarship for 2023/24 and 2024/25 entry if you do not meet the new criteria. Please see https://www.cumbria.ac.uk/study/international-students/fees-and-finance/scholarships-bursaries-and-discounts/ for details of the EU Transition scholarship.
