Student finance 2023

Learn more about student finance for undergraduate students joining The University of Manchester in 2023.

Student Finance updates for 2023 entry will be added to this page once we have confirmation from the government on arrangements for this year of entry.

Tuition fees for 2023 entry

The tuition fee for 2023 entry is £9,250 per year.

Eligible students (UK) will be able to borrow the full cost of tuition from the government in the form of a tuition fee loan. The tuition fee loan isn't currently means-tested and is available to all eligible students.

Maintenance Loan for 2023 entry

Once we have confirmation from the government on the Maintenance Loan figures for 2023 entry, we’ll update these pages. For information on the Maintenance Loan for students starting university in 2022, visit our student finance 2022 webpages.


After you graduate, your tuition fee loan and your loan for living costs will be combined together into one sum. You don’t have to start paying anything back until the April after you have finished your course and only when you have started earning over £25,000 per year.

The amount you pay back is 9% of your income above £25,000 and repayments are made automatically through the tax system. Interest rates are based on the retail price index (RPI) and any outstanding repayments will be written off after 40 years.
