Funding

In the United Kingdom, studies are paid (in Scotland, the state pays for the citizens of the EU, excluding England).
For the academic year 2015/2016, the maximum yearly tuition fee can be £9,000 (every university has their own fee but usually this is the maximum). Students from the EU can apply for a loan from the UK government to pay the tuition fee. This loan is interest-free and you start paying it off only when your salary exceeds the threshold established for each country separately. You will find information on the loan here: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/loans-and-grants. Unfortunately, non-UK citizens cannot apply for a loan to cover their costs of living during studies. However, many universities offer social support, often based on the parents’ income.
