Fees and funding

At University Centre Croydon (UCC) we believe that Higher Education (HE) should be as affordable as possible. We charge £6,000 a year for full-time home and EU students compared with £9,000 for degree courses at most British universities.

The Government’s tuition fee loan scheme allows you to go to college or university without paying any of the fees during your studies. In addition, there are loans available to cover living costs. You can be given up to £10,702 per year if you live away from your parents in London. You will only need to repay loans (tuition and living costs) when you are working and earning over £21,000 per year. You will repay just 9% of anything you earn above £21,000.

For example, if you are earning £25,000 per year, your repayments will be just £30 per month. The Government will write off any of the loan still outstanding after 30 years.

Additional financial support available

Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs)

Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are grants to help pay the extra essential costs you may have as a direct result of your disability, including a mental-health condition, or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia or dyspraxia. You don’t have to pay these back.

Find out more about DSA.

Dependants grants

If you’re a full-time student you might be able to get extra financial help if you have children or an adult who depends on you financially. Dependants’ Grants are paid in addition to your main student finance and don’t normally have to be paid back, unless you leave your course early.
