Students from England

For full-time higher education courses, the main types of financial help you can get in 2018/19 are:

Tuition fee loan

This covers the full amount you are charged for tuition fees. The amount that you borrow does not depend on household income. The loan is paid directly to Harper Adams University.

Maintenance loan 

To help with accommodation, food, travel and other living costs. The amount you can borrow depends on whether you live at home or on campus while you are studying and your household income. The money is paid over three instalments directly into your nominated bank account at the start of each term. 

Please note: In your placement year the total amount of loan you can receive through Student Finance is reduced.

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS). The OfS is the new independent regulator for higher education in England and all higher education providers need to register with the OfS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2019-20 academic year. The OfS will start publishing providers on its Register from July 2018. We have made an application to register and expect a decision by September 2018. No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OfS. Please do feel free to contact our Admissions Office on 01952 815000 or at admissions@harper-adams.ac.uk for more information or visit the Office for Students website on www.officeforstudents.org.uk.
