I am at student finance. I found out University of Buckingham only gives out a loan of £6,165. It says in their website "Students are responsible for paying the remaining balance to the university for each term’s fees."https://www.buckingham.ac.uk/admissi...rnal/grants/uk

The fees are: Year Term UK & EU (Home) International 2018 Autumn £2,800 £3,867 2019 Winter £2,800 £3,867 Spring £2,800 £3,867 Summer £2,800 £3,867 Autumn £2,800* £3,867* 2020 Winter £2,800* £3,867* Spring £2,800* £3,867* Summer £2,800* £3,867* Autumn £2,800* £3,867* Total: £25,200* £34,803*
Is it me or does this not add up? Do Buckingham not give you the amount needed to pay for you tuition fees?

I had a look my other option, which is University of Reading. Reading gives out a standard loan of £9250. This will also be the fee per year. This looks more normal.
Can someone explain Buckingham to me?

Hi CertifiedRaccoon,

You can apply for a loan through Student Finance England to pay for your Tuition Fee.

The maximum amount of tuition fee loan available from Student Finance England will be £9,250 for student studying as a public institution.

Students studying at a private institution can apply for a maximum loan of £6,165 .
Fees may be higher at a private institution, in that case the student would need to self fund the difference.

Thanks Rona

This is a 2 year degree course, which will be 3 terms (2 payments). It looks like SF only handles 2 term degrees (3 payments)?
Is this correct?

Hi CertifiedRaccoon,

Most full time students studying at a government funded institution will be eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee loan of up to £9,250. However, students studying at an Alternative Provider can apply for Tuition Fee loan between £6000 - £6165

Once Student Finance England have received 'Confirmation Of Attendance it will be paid directly to the institution.

The universities are aware of how the Tuition Fee is paid.

Tuition fees are paid in 3 instalments during the academic year and will be paid at 25%, 25% and 50%. For example, fees being charged at £9,250 will be paid to the college/university (HEP) in the following payments:

25% - £2,312.50
25% - £2,312.50
50% - £4,625.00Thanks Rona

Hi CertifiedRaccoon,
