Everything you need to know about student finance

Choosing a university will be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. At the University of Liverpool, we offer you an excellent all-round student experience in a renowned Russell Group University environment and we hope to give you the opportunity to build the foundations for a successful career.

These pages explain the costs you can expect as a Home student at the University of Liverpool and the sources of funding that are available to support you.

Tuition fees

Your course fees do not have to be paid upfront. Instead, you can take out a tuition fee loan which is paid straight to the University. More about tuition fees.

Government funding

The Government offers financial support for students resident in England via a range of loans, scholarships and bursaries. More about government funding.


You will only start repaying any government loans (tuition and living costs) in the month of April after you leave university, if you are in work and earning over £27,295 per year. More about repayments.
