UK, EU, and EEA fees
The NCH London tuition fees for the 2018/19 academic year are £9,250 for students from the UK, EU and EEA, including Switzerland.

Tuition fee loans
Students who have resided in the UK, EU, EEA or Switzerland for the three years before starting their first undergraduate degree may be eligible to apply for a tuition fee loan of up to £6,165 from Student Finance.
To determine if you are entitled to a tuition fee loan, please consult the following government agencies, according to your place of residence.
What happens after Brexit?
EU students applying to degree programmes starting in 2018, that meet the eligibility criteria under the current rules, will be eligible to pay the same fees as home fee status students.
EU students attending university in England, who meet the criteria to receive loans and grants from the Student Loans Company will continue to do so for the duration of courses they are currently enrolled on. This has been confirmed by the Student Loans Company for England.
This guarantee will apply for the full duration of the course, even if the course finishes after the UK has left the EU.
Paying your fees
Should you receive a tuition fee loan, you will pay the difference between your loan of £6,165 and your NCH London tuition fees directly to the College. We recommend that you pay this monthly, by direct debit to help you spread the cost of your fees.
For most students receiving a tuition fee loan, the monthly payment is £280.45. However, students will receive a personal payment plan alongside their offer, which will take into consideration any scholarship or bursary which would reduce this amount.
NCH offers a select number of highly prestigious scholarships to recognise exceptional academic potential and achievements. These awards are worth up to £2,000 per year towards the NCH London tuition fees. Our Admissions team automatically considers all applicants for a scholarship award.
Offer holders from the UK, EU, EEA or Switzerland who would be unable to take up their place without further financial support, can apply to the NCH Trust for a means-tested bursary.
Bursaries can contribute between £500 and £3,085 per year towards your tuition fees at NCH, meaning that a bursary could cover part or all of the difference between your tuition fee loan of £6,165, and our fees of £9,250. The maximum funding available to a student through a combination of scholarship and bursary is usually £3,085 per year.
You do not need to repay a bursary, which means that, if you get one, your degree will cost less than studying at another institution, and with you will also graduate with less debt.
If finances are an obstacle to you taking up your place at NCH, we recommend you apply for a bursary. Our means-test is more generous than most other institutions. So, even if your parents have a significantly higher than average combined income, you might still receive an award.
The Trust’s bursary funding is finite, and awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis, so we recommend you apply as soon as possible if you think you need extra financial support. You can apply for a bursary below.

Permanent residents of England, and EU nationals who have been resident in the UK for five years or more before their programme starts can also apply for a maintenance loan from SLC. The amount of loan you receive will vary according to your household income. You can use your loan to pay for accommodation and living costs such as transportation and food.
There is lots of information and guidance on applying for your maintenance loan at the Student Finance Zone.
