Funding, Costs, Fees, and Support

We understand that going to University is a significant investment in your future. Here are a range of financial options available if you are considering studying with us.

Joining in January - Haven’t applied for funding yet?

Don't worry, you still have time. But it’s vital that you apply as soon possible. You don’t need to have a confirmed place with us to apply for funding.  It’s important your funding is in place so you can start your academic career without any financial worries. 


There are a range of financial options available if you’re considering studying with us – including tuition fee and maintenance loansscholarships and bursaries. The Student Loan Company’s student finance calculator is a useful tool to see how much you could receive.

Looking to study in 22/23?

The undergraduate funding application process normally opens towards the end of February. Applications for part time and postgraduate funding open in late Spring. Visit student finance on the gov.uk website to find out more about the application process and eligibility criteria. 

You or your parents/guardian/partner may be asked to provide evidence to support your funding application, so it’s important to check your emails and ensure this is provided promptly. 

There are no age limits on eligibility for tuition fee loans and government maintenance grants, so mature students can apply – provided you're studying for your first degree or Masters. If you have any questions contact our Gateway team at: gateway@wlv.ac.uk. 

More information on funding and budgeting for students can be found at Finances - University of Wolverhampton (wlv.ac.uk)

Costs and Fees

Get a clear picture of how much coming to University might cost and what help is available

How much you pay is determined by what course you are studying, the level (undergraduate, postgraduate) your mode of attendance (full-time or part-time) and your fee status (UK/Home, International, EU).  

It is important to carefully consider the financial implications of studying at university.  In additional to paying tuition fees, you will need to cover your living expenses, including accommodation, food, heating, travel, books and stationery.

No matter how you are being funded, whether through Student Finance (UK/Home students) or paying for it yourself, working out how much you will need to cover basic costs is a good place to start.
