HE Fees and Finance

One of the major areas of concern for all students and prospective students is how they will manage financially while attending College or University. At Myerscough we are very conscious of this and provide support for students as they negotiate their way through the financial maze of student funding. There are a number of ways that students can fund their course, from Government backed loans and grants, to support for the disabled and career development loans.

Full details of all higher education tuition fees, fee liability for withdrawal and interruption to study, and fee reductions can be found in our 2018/19 Tuition Fee Policy

Continuing students – Higher Education Tuition Fees

Fees for continuing students are detailed in the Higher Education Tuition Fees Policy (2018/19) and the Higher Education Tuition Fee Table (2018/19)

Loans

Tuition Fee Loan

This can cover the full cost of your tuition fees and is paid directly to College. The amount is not income assessed, therefore, all students completing their first degree level course are eligible for the full amount. However, if you wish to pay a proportion of the tuition fees yourself you can take out a lower loan amount. Details regarding repayment of the loan are detailed below.

Maintenance Loan

This is to help towards living costs (accommodation, food, travel and course materials for example) whilst studying at College. You can receive up to £8,944 each year (dependent on household income), which is paid to you in 3 termly installments. Details regarding repayment of the loan is detailed below.

Disabled Students’ Allowance is available for undergraduate students. The maximum grant available to those eligible is £22,603.

Pro-rata maintenance loans are also available to students studying an eligible part time course* from August 2018. Part-time students wishing to apply for any loan must be studying at least 25% intensity of a full time course to be eligible.

*Eligible courses include BSc (Hons), Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Level 7)

Postgraduate Students

Postgraduate Students can apply for a non-income assessed Postgraduate Loan of up to £10,906 to help towards course and living costs.

The amount awarded is for the duration of the course, whether this be over 1, 2 or more years.  For students studying over a 2 year or more period the award will be split and students will receive £5000 in their first year and £5000 in their 2nd year.

Payment will be made direct to students on a termly basis in a 33%, 33%, 34% split.

To apply for a Postgraduate Loan visit www.gov.uk/studentfinance. If you have applied for a student loan previously you can simply log in to your online account and apply.  If not you will first need to register your details and set up an online account before applying.  Please note that you only need to apply once for the loan and not each year of your course.

Details regarding repayment of the loan is details below.

Disabled Students’ Allowance is also available for postgraduate students. Successful applicants will receive a single allowance of up to £20,000 to support them on their course.

Repayments

The Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan are both repayable once you have completed your course and you are earning over £25,000. Payments will be deducted straight from your salary, through PAYE, and will be based on 9% of anything over the £25,000. So, for example, if your salary is £27,000, you will repay 9% of £2000 each year. That works out at £180, which breaks down to less than 50p a day (£15 each month). For details on repayments if you become self-employed please visit the Student Finance England website. Further information is available on the Student Finance England website.

Other financial support 

Myerscough College Bursaries

We want to ensure that all students have the opportunity to study for a degree qualification, regardless of background or financial circumstances. The College is committed to providing support to students from lower income households.

A limited number of Myerscough College Bursaries are available, to provide discretionary financial assistance for students to access and remain in Higher Education, particularly those students who need financial help to meet extra costs that cannot be met from other sources of support. Priority groups include students with children, lone parents, mature students with existing financial commitments, students from low income backgrounds and students in unexpected hardship. Funds are limited and therefore initial allocations will be a maximum of £750 (pro-rata for part-time students.) This will be reviewed later in the academic year, subject to take-up and availability of funds.

Higher Education Bursary Policy

Republic of Ireland Bursary

£1000 Bursary is available for full time students from the Republic of Ireland to support tuition fees or residential fees. The bursary will be discounted from tuition fees or Myerscough residential fees, pro-rata over each term.

Myerscough College Scholarships

Myerscough applicants who demonstrate or promote excellence in their subject may be eligible for financial support from one of the College scholarships. The scholarships are open to students applying to study on any Myerscough full time foundation degree or honours degree programme.

 Successful applicants will receive a £1000 cash payment to support their study at Myerscough.

In return, students in receipt of a scholarship will be expected to act as a Student Ambassador for their subject and the College by representing the College in their chosen subject, helping at College recruitment activities such as Course Advice events and Applicant Days or promoting access and support for under-represented groups where the opportunity arises.

20 scholarships are available for first year students in the following subject areas:

  • Applicants from targeted under-represented groups (white males from disadvantaged areas, BME groups and students with a learning difficulty or disability)
  • Applicants who promote excellence in Agriculture and Horticulture (to support development of the talent pool in our most traditional land-based subjects)
  • Applicants who promote excellence in STEM subjects (animal or plant sciences, agricultural engineering or motorsports engineering)
  • Applicants who promote excellence in Sport (this may be sports, golf, equine or motorsports)
  • Applicants who promote excellence in Creative Design (specifically Floral Design and Location Photography)

Applications for scholarships can be made using this Scholarship Application Form.

Payment will be made in 2 instalments (before Christmas and at the end of successful completion of the first year) ensuring the student has not withdrawn or been suspended from study and has over 90% attendance and passed all modules sat at June assessment boards. Instalments will be used to clear any outstanding fees on account.

Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA)

This grant provides extra financial help if you have a disability, mental health condition or a specific learning difficulty like dyslexia. It is paid on top of the standard student finance package and is not dependent on income, nor does it have to be repaid.

Childcare Grant

The Childcare Grant helps full-time students with the cost of childcare during term times and holidays. The amount you receive will be dependent upon your household income and is based on 85% of your actual childcare costs. The maximum available is £169.31 per week if you have one child and £290.27 per week if you have two or more children.

Parents' Learning Allowance

This can help pay for course-related costs such as books, materials and travel if you have dependent children. The amount you receive will be dependent upon your household income. The maximum available is currently £1,716 a year.

Adult Dependants’ Grant

Under the current funding guidelines, students with a husband, wife, partner or another adult family member who is financially dependent on them may be eligible for a non-repayable grant of up to £3,007 a year (dependent upon household income).

Higher Education Hardship Fund

Myerscough students who are experiencing financial hardship may be eligible for support from the Higher Education Hardship Fund.

To view the full dataset download our Transparency Table (.xls file)

The information published on these pages shows:

  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us.

 

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socio-economic background.

 It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.
