Financing your higher education studies shouldn’t be a daunting experience and we understand that sometimes people need a helping hand in financing their higher education courses. Studying higher education shouldn’t be a burden and with that in mind, we’ve taken the time to break down the three main routes in financing your studies with us.

Our Higher Education courses can be paid by either a loan from the Student Loans Company, by instalments with Flex Ed. or by paying the full cost upfront.

Student Loans

Our higher education courses are all eligible for a loan from the Student Loans Company. This means that you can get a loan to cover the costs of all tuition fees.

For students who apply for a student loan between 6th April 2019 to 5th April 2020, the loan is repayable once your annual salary rises above the minimum threshold of £25,725. For example, and as shown in the table below, if you were earning £30,000 per year then the repayment on a tuition fee loan will be approximately £32 per month.

Income each year before tax9% will be deducted fromMonthly repayment (Approx)
£25,725 £0 £0
£30,000 £4,274 £32
£40,000 £14,275 £107
£50,000 £24,275 £182
£60,000 £34,275 £257

Flexible Payments Plan with Flex Ed.

A flexible payment plan can be arranged with Oriel Collections Ltd, also known as ‘FlexEd’. Oriel Collections Ltd are licenced to administer your account and will collect your payments each month. There is an administration charge of £6 per month which will be collected in advance with your first instalment.
