Undergraduate fees and funding

Article

This page is for Home and EU undergraduate students. If you are an international student please visit our international fees and funding section.

If you've already started studying at Goldsmiths and require financial support, please refer to our information for current students.

EU students

The UK government has announced that:

  • EU fees for 2020 entry will be fixed at the home fee rate
  • EU nationals starting courses in England for 2020 entry will remain eligible for undergraduate and postgraduate financial support from Student Finance England for the duration of their course, provided they meet the existing residency requirements

You can find full details and guidance on the government website, or on the Goldsmiths EU page.

Scholarships and bursaries

Goldsmiths offers a range of financial support including bursaries and scholarships. These are awarded based on a variety of criteria, for example academic achievements or personal circumstances.

Student loans

Tuition fee loans

Most Home/EU students are eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan. If you take out the loan, Student Finance England will pay your fees directly to Goldsmiths, meaning you won't have to pay anything upfront. 

The process is different if you're a student from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Visit your relevant website for more information:

Help with living costs

The government also offers Maintenance Loans to help with living costs. The amount you can borrow depends on your household income and whether or not you live at home during your degree. Unlike the Tuition Fee Loan, the Maintenance Loan is paid directly into your bank account. 

Repaying your loans

For both Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans, you only start paying back the loan when you earn over £25,000 a year and your monthly payments are based on how much you earn.

As an example, if you earn £27,000 a year then you will pay £15 towards your Tuition Fee Loan each month.

You can read more about repaying your student loans on the Student Room's loan repayment pages.

External funding options

In addition to the scholarships and bursaries offered by Goldsmiths, you may also be able to apply for extra funding from external sources including charities and trusts. Scholarship Search and the Scholarship Hub are good places to start looking.

You can also visit your local library and look through one or more of the following publications for information on grant-making bodies: Educational Grants Directory, Charities Digest, Grants Register, Directory of Grant Making Trusts.
