Student finance


We strive to keep down the cost of all our programmes, however, whether in work or not, many students require financial support in order to fund their studies. Outlined here is information on sources of funding which may help.


Student loans

Student loans are available to students studying for an undergraduate degree for the first time.

There are two types of student loan available, the tuition fee loan and the maintenance loan (which helps with living costs such as accommodation, transport and food) as the following video from Student Finance England explains.

You may apply for only a tuition fee loan, of for both tuition fee and maintenance loans, though do be aware that these loans have different eligibility criteria.

Tuition fee loan

To be eligible, you must have been resident in the UK, EU, EEA or Switzerland for the three years before starting your course. This loan covers the entirety of a student’s tuition fee.

Maintenance loan

To be eligible, you must have been resident in the UK for five years or more before your course starts. This loan amount varies according to household income.

How to apply

Student finance is covered by a different government agency in each nation of the UK. It is therefore necessary to apply through the agency that oversees students from your place of residence:

The Student Room’s Student Finance Zone offers lots of additional information and guidance on applying for loans.


Scholarships

The Atul Chauhan Scholarship is awarded from a limited fund to high achieving students in the form of a reduction in their tuition fees. We welcome scholarship applications from all students and applicants are assessed purely on their academic ability.

Decisions on scholarship awards are made in conjunction with admission offers. This means that applicants know whether they should receive a scholarship before having to decide whether to accept the offer of a place on a course.

To apply for a scholarship, please complete a scholarship form and submit it alongside your application to study at Amity.


Bursaries

Bursaries are awarded with the aim of broadening access to higher education by providing financial assistance to students who are less able to afford the cost of studying.

If you're a full-time UK student, you do not need to apply for a bursary separately. You need only to ensure that you consent to share your financial details with Amity when you make an application to Student Finance England. The finance office shall then be able to automatically identify students who are eligible for support.

Bursaries are available to students who meet the eligibility criteria below:

Students who meet the eligibilty criteria are offered support up to a maximum of £2,000 for each year of their course, on a sliding scale determined by family income as follows:

To ensure that the maximum bursaries are targeted at those most in need, the University will pay additional support of £1,000 per year to students who meet one or more of the following criteria:
