All undergraduate and postgraduate (taught and research) students receive upfront government funding to help cover the costs of their tuition fees and living expenses. The current amount of support they can receive for academic year 2018/19 and earlier years can be found on the Student Finance England website at: https://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/policy/.

Publicly funded higher education providers also receive direct funding, in the form of a teaching grant, to help support the provision of those subjects where costs typically exceed the amount received through tuition fees. Subjects are assigned to price bands with higher-cost subjects, including medicine and most science, engineering and technology related subject receiving the highest rates of top-up funding.
