This money matters guide outlines the tuition fees and financial support arrangements for UK students joining part-time undergraduate degrees (BA/BSc/LLB), part-time integrated Masters degrees (MComp/MNSW/MSci) and part-time foundation degrees (FdA/FdSc). This guide is for those joining Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025.

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.

If you are a prospective UK student joining a part-time undergraduate degree or integrated Masters degree at Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025, the tuition fee will be £77 per credit (subject to final Government approval). This is equivalent to £1,540 per 20 credit module. You need 360 credits to complete an undergraduate degree and 480 credits to complete an integrated Masters degree.

If you are a prospective UK student joining FdA Early Years Education and Leadership 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. This is providing at least 25% of the equivalent part-time degree is being studied per year.


Part-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:

A range of scholarships are available to current students. You can apply or be nominated once you enrol on a part-time degree, and begin studying with us.

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.

Find more information on the full range of scholarships, including eligibility criteria for each award.

Disabled Students’ Allowance

You will not have access to a grant that contributes towards your living costs. However, if you have a disability or specific learning difficulty, you may be eligible for support to meet your individual needs. Find out more through the Government’s Disabled Students’ Allowance.

Disabled Students’ Allowances are worth up to £26,948 for eligible students in academic year 2024/25. These allowances help with the cost of specialist equipment, extra travel costs, or other support necessary to enable your studies.

If you feel you have a support requirement, we encourage you to arrange a chat with our Inclusive Services team.
