A student loan is money that you borrow to pay for your university studies.

You'll need to pay the loan back over a certain period of time with interest. 

Home students

The UK government offers loans to Home students to pay the full cost of their tuition. They also offer maintenance loans that you can use towards your living costs. 

The financial support available in each UK region is slightly different so it's worth exploring what's available through your regional funding body e.g. Student Finance England for students who normally live in England.

North American students

American and Canadian students who are interested in studying at Imperial can access various loans to help with the cost of study in the UK.
