Congratulations! We are so pleased you have chosen Buckingham in Clearing, and we can’t wait to welcome you to our community and help you kick-start the next phase of your life.

 

You’ve accepted your offer, what now? Take a look at the next steps below.

 

Step 1. Fees

  • Applying for a two-year degree?

With a two-year degree, you not only complete your course up to a year earlier, you will save on tuition and living costs too. When living costs are included, you pay around 20% less than you would on a three-year course at a university charging the standard £9,250pa for tuition. We love that our graduates can enter the workforce with a lot less student debt.

Due to our accelerated model, it does mean that fees are slightly higher each year of the two-year degree compared to a standard three-year degree. So there will likely be a fee gap between your tuition fees and the funds you can access through government loans. This will depend on the course you choose and the level of maintenance loan you are eligible for.

The maximum student loan contribution (excluding any maintenance loan you may qualify for) is currently £6,165, which covers just under half of the tuition fees.

You will be required to pay the rest of the tuition fees to the University on a termly basis (in four instalments each year). This means you will need an additional source of funding. For more information, visit our website.

We encourage all students to check if they qualify for a maintenance loan from the government, which will be in addition to the student loan contribution.

 

  • Applying for a three-year degree?

The maximum student loan contribution (excluding any maintenance loan you may qualify for) is currently £6,165. You will be required to pay the rest of the tuition fees to the University on a termly basis. For more information, visit our website.

 

  • Applying for a Foundation course?

If you have chosen one of our degrees with integrated Foundation then you are still eligible for a student loan. The maximum student loan contribution (excluding any maintenance loan you may qualify for) is currently £6,165*. You will be required to pay the rest of the tuition fees to the University on a termly basis. For more information, visit our website.

*excluding BSc Business and Management (with integrated Foundation), for which the maximum student loan contribution is £7,400.

 

Step 2. Accommodation

Don’t worry, we still have plenty of student accommodation places available!
