How to Apply for a Student Loan in UK

Updated on January 27, 2013

What is a Student Loan?

The British Government provides student loans to help students pay their tuition fees. Every Undergraduate student who has been accepted by a British University is entitled to a student loan. The loan amount is equal to the University's tuition fees (e.g. 9,000 pounds stirling). The student loan is interest-free. But be careful! The loan should be paid back after graduation only if the student exceeds the annual income threshold of 24,000 pounds stirling.

If you need more information about student loans or you decide to apply for a student loan yourself, you might visit the British Government's page about finance for students. Because this is not a simple procedure, you may contact Anglia Foundation. Anglia Foundation can apply for a student loan on your behalf. As a result, your loan will be GUARANTEED.

And what about other ways to get financial aid? Student grants? Or scholarships? Or fellowships? Just keep on reading!

The student grant may be an amount up to 1,600 pounds stirling per year of study. Such grants help students to cover living costs and are given according to each University's policy. No student can ensure a student grant. If you want more details about student grants or you decide to apply for a student grant yourself, you might visit the British Government's page about finance for students. You may also contact Anglia Foundation. Anglia Foundation's staff has great experience in the field and can apply for a student grant on your behalf with a relatively good chance of success. Normally, three out of ten Anglia Foundation clients, get a student grant.

Scholarships, fellowships and other studentships are different ways of financing your studies in the UK. Most of those are given to Postgraduate students who follow a Masters degree (MSc, MPhil) or a Doctorate (PhD). The amounts of scholarships may vary.

      @anonymous: The student loan needs to be paid back in monthly installments after graduation only in case you earn more than 24,000 pounds sterling per year. Otherwise, you don't need to pay it back.
