Financial Assistance

Financial support for mature students returning to studies in the UK can vary depending on several factors, including the level of study (undergraduate or postgraduate), individual circumstances, and the specific course or university chosen. Here are some common financial support options available to mature students:

  1. Tuition Fee Loans: Mature students studying for their first degree at the undergraduate level can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of their course fees. The amount of the loan will depend on the tuition fees charged by the university.
  2. Maintenance Grants and Special Support Grants: Some mature students may qualify for maintenance grants or special support grants instead of maintenance loans. Grants do not need to be repaid and are typically based on financial need.
  3. Scholarships and Bursaries: Many universities offer scholarships and bursaries specifically for mature students. These can be based on academic achievement, specific criteria related to the course of study, or financial need.
  4. Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs): Students with disabilities, including mature students, may be eligible for DSAs. These allowances help cover the additional costs of studying related to a disability, such as specialized equipment or support services.
