I'm a student from Germany and I'm planning to study in the UK by the end of the year. The university of my choice has tuition fees of £9,250 and expects non-UK students to pay a £5,000 deposit in advance. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to pay this myself at this point. A German student loan (BAföG) would pay up to 4,600€ (~£3923) which doesn't even cover the mentioned deposit. I am trying to find scholarships that might fund it but so far I haven't really found anything suitable and apparently the deadline for sponsorship confirmation was on the 9 December 2016.
My question now is when is how much paid of the annual tuition fees and is there a possibility that the Stundet Finance could pay these £5,000 out of the £9,250 in advance?
Thank you for your help!

I'm afraid many uk students encounter a problem when they realise they have to pay a deposit for accomodation and it's pretty much a blanket rule that sfe never releases payments without confirmation of attendance from universities so you're going to have to find another option, sorry.
