The Student Loans Company administers the new Postgraduate Loan for Master’s degrees for all eligible students who live in England.

Students starting a postgraduate Master’s course from 1 August 2017 will be able to apply for a Postgraduate Loan in academic year 2017/18.

The loan is a contribution to help with course related costs such as tuition fees and materials. Any Postgraduate Loan balance is repayable and includes interest charged.

Paying your fees directly

If you are paying fees yourself, you will need to complete the tuition fee section of the online registration. You can choose to pay in full, 9 instalments by Direct Debit, or 3 instalments. If you’re paying the fees all at once, you have 28 days from the date of the invoice to make your payment. If paying by instalments, then the payment is due before or on the dates stated in the notifications that we will send you.

Paying UEA accommodation fees

You will normally pay your UEA accommodation fees in monthly instalments.

If you don’t have a UK bank account yet, don’t worry. Please still complete the accommodation task. If you have chosen to pay in 9 instalments you will fill in the Direct Debit form once you have your bank account details. 

If you are in receipt of a studentship or have a sponsor it should show up on your online registration form automatically. If it doesn’t, press 'Report a Problem' and let us know, it will then tell you to scan or bring your supporting documents to the Finance Enquiry Office in The Registry.
