Your student funding deadline

You need to reapply for your tuition fee loan and your maintenance loan each year. Your funding body will normally contact you about this directly.

You need to reapply for your tuition fee loan and your maintenance loan by the end of May. You can still apply after this date, but if you do apply later you may not receive your money for the start of term. In order to be eligible, you must apply no later than nine months after the start of your course.

  • Tuition fee loan deadline: End of May.
  • Maintenance loan deadline: End of May.

You can apply for a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan via your government website. The tuition fee loan is paid directly to Liverpool John Moores University.

Maintenance loans

Am I eligible for a maintenance loan?

The maintenance loan is available to full-time UK students who don't already have an honours degree and who are under the age of 60 on 1 September in the year they start their course.

PGCE/PGDE students are funded on the same basis as undergraduates and are also eligible for a maintenance loan.

Part-time students are NOT eligible. However, if you are a part-time student you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees.

How will I receive the maintenance loan?

The maintenance loan money is paid straight into your bank or building society account by the Student Loans Company (SLC). Prior to releasing your maintenance loan the SLC will require confirmation from us that you are attending Liverpool John Moores University.

The loan is paid in three instalments and it's up to you to budget this money for the whole term. For example, you will have to pay your rent and travel costs out of this money.

Maintenance grant

Please note: This grant is only available to those that started prior to 1st September 2016

Home students from low income households will also be eligible for a grant. The value of which will vary dependent on the year you commenced your course and where in the UK you normally live.

Part-time and EU students are not eligible for this grant.

If you have previously studied at university or other Higher Education institution, you may not be eligible for this grant.
