This money matters guide outlines the tuition fees and financial support arrangements for UK students joining full-time undergraduate degrees (BA/BSc/LLB) and integrated foundation years, full-time foundation degrees (FdA/FdSc), and full-time integrated Masters degrees (MComp/MNSW/MSci). This guide is for those joining Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025.
Please note that the information on this page is subject to change and does not apply to conversion (top-up) degree students or University Advanced Certificate Mental Health & Wellbeing Practitioner: Specialist Adult Mental Health students.
On this page you can find out what student funding you may qualify for and how to apply for it. We encourage you to explore all potential sources of additional funding to maximise payment support.
Exceptions may apply if you have enrolled on previous higher education study (at level 4 or level 5). This applies if you didn’t achieve a qualification, or if the course you are joining is of an equivalent or lower level to a previous qualification.Previous study and equivalent and lower qualifications
If you are a prospective UK student joining a full-time undergraduate degree or full-time integrated Masters degree at Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025, the tuition fee will be £9,250 a year.
If you are a prospective UK student joining a full-time foundation degree at Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025, the tuition fee will be £6,165 a year
The University may administer a small inflationary rise in tuition fees as you progress through the course. This will be in line with Government policies.
Eligible students will not pay up front for their tuition and can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover the cost of the course fees.
Sandwich years and study abroad
If you are joining an undergraduate degree in academic year 2024/25 and take a sandwich year or an additional year studying abroad as part of your course, we will meet the cost of tuition fees for the sandwich year or year abroad through the Student Opportunity Fund.
You will usually take a sandwich year or year abroad after two years of study. So, for 2024/25 entry students, you would take this in academic year 2026/27.
While UK universities can charge fees for sandwich years and years abroad, we are waiving these charges to encourage and support students who wish to take up these valuable opportunities.
Alternatively, if you spend a semester overseas as part of the second year of a 3-year degree or a 4-year integrated Masters degree, standard tuition fees will apply (as if you spent the full academic year based at Edge Hill University). However, we will meet the costs of half of these tuition fees, for example £4,625 for academic year 2024/25, through the Student Opportunity Fund.
Full-time undergraduate student loans are subject to different financial arrangements and eligibility criteria depending on whether you are domiciled in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. The information below applies to eligible students domiciled in England only.
If you are domiciled in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you should consult the website of the relevant funding body:

Residency conditions and additional eligibility criteria apply. Whilst all eligible students can expect to receive the placement allowance, the University is only allocated a capped number of Social Work Bursary awards and is required to nominate students to receive the bursary following stipulated guidance. Receipt of a Social Work Bursary is therefore not guaranteed and there is no right of appeal. The University has provided more information on availability and eligibility criteria.
Edge Hill University offers scholarships which reward excellence from prospective full-time undergraduate students.
You can also take advantage of career enhancing opportunities by applying for financial support from our Student Opportunity Fund. This fund is available to support both eligible full-time and part-time students.
