A Tuition Fee Loan is available to cover course costs – if you take one out, you do not have to pay your course costs upfront

A Maintenance Loan is available to help with living costs

It does not matter if you already have a student loan – you can still apply for both these loans to support your teacher training

You will only start making repayments when you earn over the threshold

If you have a student loan already, taking out a further loan for your teacher training will not see your monthly repayments increase

To find out more about the other support available to fund your training, visit the DfE funding my training page.


Tuition fees and any other financial support you might receive will depend on your status as a home, EU/EEA or overseas student. Find out more information on GOV.UK.

Residents of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will need to apply for this support via your country’s student finance body (Student Finance Wales, Student Awards Agency Scotland or Student Finance NI).
