Home Fees

We know university is a big investment. Don't worry – Sunderland in London is a great choice and we've got you covered. You can find all the information here related to fees and funding as a home student studying in the UK.

Undergraduate Fees

Tuition fees for full-time students in 2022/23 and 2023/4 are £9,250 per year for 3 or 4-year undergraduate degrees and top-up degrees.

Fees for full-time students studying foundation degrees are £8,750 for 2022/23 and 2023/4.

Home students can apply for a loan to pay for their tuition fees managed by Student Finance England(SFE). The process differs slightly depending on where you're from.

If you intend to pay your fees through Student Finance England, either in part or full, you must inform the University at the time of enrolment. Funding applications need to be made direct to Student Finance England and must be made for each academic year of your course of study.

Once Student Finance England agrees to fund you, they will notify and pay your tuition fees directly to the University.

Undergraduate Funding

Tuition Fee Loan

All eligible full-time and part-time Home undergraduate students are entitled to apply for student loans to cover the cost of their tuition fees. 

Maintenance Loan

Home students may be also entitled to a Maintenance Loan, which can be used for living costs. If you are an EU student, who has lived in the UK or its islands for three years or more, you may also be eligible for a Maintenance Loan.

Students looking to receive student finance need to meet certain criteria on nationality, residency, age and previous study. Visit the government's student finance website for more information.

Students from England

Most full-time and part-time students can apply online to Student Finance England (SFE). You don’t have to wait until you’re accepted on a course to apply for student finance. If you haven’t accepted a place yet, create your student finance account and apply using your first choice of course. 

Students from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

There’s a different process for students from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. More information is available on

Once Student Finance England has assessed your application, they will send you a financial notification letter showing what help you are entitled to. This letter will include a declaration that you must sign and return to Student Finance England.

Don't forget, Student Finance England can't pay you until you enrol with the University.

You need to apply for student finance each year of your course. Student Finance England will contact you when you need to re-apply.

Postgraduate Fees

Tuition fees for most postgraduate programmes are £7,000 - £12,500 in 2022/23 and £7,000 - £15,000 depending on the course.


Postgraduate loan

If you are a home student, studying either full-time or part-time for a postgraduate degree, you can apply for a government-funded loan to help you fund your postgraduate course as well as any associated living costs. This loan is only repayable once you start earning a certain amount and is weighted so you don't pay more than you can afford. 

When you apply to do a postgraduate degree, you are eligible for a non-means tested tuition fee loan of up to £12,167. In order to be considered, you need to meet the following criteria:

Masters loans are available for students who have lived in the EU for at least three years before the start of the course. They are not available for international students.

Your Masters loan will be paid directly into your bank account. You'll get three instalments over the course of the academic year (33%, 33% and 34%), with each payment being made at the start of term.

Important: if you already hold a postgraduate masters qualification (including an integrated masters qualification such as MPharm), you will not be eligible for another masters loan.

Instalment plans

Self-funded and postgraduate students have an option of how they wish to pay their tuition fees.

When you enrol you can either pay the total tuition fee amount in full or choose one of the following payment options:

If your course is one academic year or more, you can choose to split your tuition fee payment into three amounts, based on the official start date of your course. 

Course start date Instalment one  Instalment two Instalment three
October 1 December 1 March 1 June
January  1 March 1 June 1 September
April  1 June 1 September 1 December 
August 1 October 1 January 1 April

If you choose to pay via seven instalments your start date will be the same as the three payment instalment plan. You will then pay monthly on the 1st until your final payment, which also falls on the same date as above.

A credit agreement must be completed if you want to pay through seven instalments. This credit agreement is available during the online enrolment process or via your e:Vision account.
