HE Fees & Loans

As part of our pledge to students we provide financial assistance through reduced tuition fees. The FAB Futures team can provide practical help and advice about completing the loan application. Wigan & Leigh College ensure all students are supported and receive the encouragement required to take that next step in joining a University Centre programme.

Loans

Applying for a loan Undergraduates can apply for a loan through Student Finance England www.gov.uk/apply-online-for-student-finance Both full and part-time students can apply online for the Student Finance Loan to cover tuition costs. Graduates will only begin repaying the loan when their income is above £25,750 (Correct as of December 2019).
