For full or part time students, the amount you receive from Student Finance England depends on the cost of your fees. At South Cheshire College, the maximum our HE courses will cost for 2016/17 is £5,850 per annum of which full-time students will be eligible for a government loan to cover the cost.
Full time students are eligible for repayment of the loan, from the April after you leave/graduate. If you are a part-time student, it’s four years after starting the course, or the April after you complete, depending on which comes first. You are not expected to start repayments until you earn over £21,000 pa gross, repayments collected by HMRC, at a rate of 9% of what you earn above £21,000.
