Apply now

Please note, if you are planning to study the MA/MSc (but will be exempt one or more modules) or if you are planning on studying the Postgraduate Diploma, these courses will not be eligible for a postgraduate loan. 

The postgraduate loan is not applicable to PGCE students. The standard undergraduate package of Student Finance is available to those studying a PGCE.

European Students based outside the UK

Following the UK’s departure from the EU, it has been confirmed that most EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals starting courses on or after 1 August 2021 will not be eligible for support from Student Finance England.

Irish nationals living in the UK or Ireland will not be affected by these changes and will continue to be eligible for support.

At University College Birmingham, we would like to support our EU applicants through this transition, therefore, we are offering an automatic EU Transition Award to all eligible EU students who start their studies at UCB in September 2021 or January 2022. Find out more about our EU transition award.
