Full-Time Undergraduate UK Students
For UK students, the total course fee is £27,750, which is £9,250 per year. Students who will be starting a course at ScreenSpace are able to apply for a full student loan to cover this cost of their fees. If your course runs for two years or more, you will need to pay the fee for each academic year at the start of that year.

UK students may also be eligible for a Maintenance Loan to cover the costs of study. For more information about student finance, read the Student Finance guide and the guide to how and when to apply.

For more information about student finance, visit Student Finance.

EU/EEA Student Finance from 1 January 2021
If you’re starting a course on or after 1 January 2021, you must have settled or pre-settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme to get student finance.

If you are an EU/EEA student with Settlement Status you will pay UK fees.

Irish citizens do not need to apply for a visa or to the EU Settlement Scheme.

Settlement Status
The UK Government’s EU Settlement Scheme allows EU citizens to continue to study, work and live in the UK post-Brexit.  Following the EU Referendum EU citizens; citizens of Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland (non-EU EEA citizens) and Swiss citizens can apply for ScreenSpace courses if they have EU Settlement Status.

From 1 January 2021 any EU/EEA/Swiss citizen not eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme will require a student visa to enter the UK. As a student, this means to enter the UK on or after 1 January 2021, you must apply for a Student Visa. More information visit Studying in the UK: guidance for EU students.

If you are an EU/EEA student and you do not have Settlement Status you will pay International fees.

International student funding and support
Unfortunately, no funding, bursaries or scholarships are available for international students.
